We booked this when we were in Ohrid. We wanted to visit Pella, the ancient Macedonian capital. It is approximately a 4 hours drive. And it was amazing. The museum in Pella had a great number of artifacts from the Ancient Macedonian kingdom and empire. Just an hour away is the Vergina tomb, where Phillip, Alexander’s father, was buried. His underground tomb is indescribable, full of golden, silver, copper objects, potteries, personal belongings. You must visit these places once in your life. Thanks to Naum, our driver, and guide.
