See the tombs of Macedonian kings, including Philip II, father of Alexander the Great, at Museum of the Royal Tombs of Aigai (Vergina), a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built around an ancient burial ground inside a large earth mound, the museum is uniquely constructed to protect the tombs while exhibiting artifacts and showing the burial ground as it was before the excavations. Explore the four tombs and artifacts on display, and don't miss the only surviving examples of ancient Greek painting; one depicts the rape of Persephone and the other a hunting scene. The site is accessible via car and bus, but be sure to check bus timetables prior to your departure. Note that photography is not permitted inside the museum.
