ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

Experience a captivating day trip to Vergina, also known as Aigai, just an hour from Thessaloniki, to explore the archaeological site of Ancient Macedonia and a winery of the region in the safety and comfort of our company, providing luxury cars and professional drivers. This is the historic place where King Philip II of Macedonia lived and met his demise, and where his son, Alexander the Great, was crowned. The visit, approximately 3 hours, also includes an exploration of the museum, a site of major importance that never fails to enthral every visitor.

The day continues with a delightful visit to a winery in the Land of Xinomavro (45 minutes from Vergina). This noble and indigenous grape variety yields deep red, full-bodied wines. These exceptional wines have earned a well-deserved Appellation of Origin and a worldwide reputation.

The day comes to a delightful close at a restaurant in the Veria region, where you can savour the authentic regional flavours that define the area.
