The archaeological museum of the royal Tombs in Vergina testifies the culture of the Macedonian Kingdom. The discovery of the tomb of Philip II, in 1977, was hailed as one of the greatest archaeological finds of the century. Rich and impressive artifacts were unearthed and can be viewed there along with the tombs themselves and the amazing frescoes, rare samples of painting from antiquity.

 

Veria is our next stop, a picturesque town with a unique landscape and architecture. We will drive through the city, see St. Paul’s Altar, the traditional Jewish quarter of Barbouta and take a rest and enjoy a coffee at a traditional café and walk for a while through the lovely streets of the city, full of old Byzantine churches and unique historical monuments.

 

We will then take the coach to Naoussa, one of the most well-known wine producing regions in Greece, where we will enjoy a rich lunch in a taverna, in a relaxing natural environment.

Shaped like Poseidon’s trident and sticking out into the Aegean Sea, Halkidiki is a treat for visitors. Lush green forests that reach right down to the beach; golden sunlight reflected in the turquoise waters; a traditional style with a rich gastronomic and cultural heritage. Endless coves, unique architectural sites, perfectly preserved Christian monument and a host of unexplored treasures all add their own rich touch to the unique canvas that is Halkidiki. Among this blend of blue and green, there are several summer resorts on the beaches of all three fingers where other minor towns and villages are located. For your daily trip, we are taking you either to an exotic beach bar, either to spend some private time, relax or have fun.
