The lost capital. That is Pella. A place from which Alexcander the Great started his conquest. It was destroyed in couple of earthquakes and abandoned as capital in late 400 AD. But most of the ancient city is there, waiting to be discovered. You can...More

It's easy to find Pella, as it's close to the main Thessaloniki-Edessa road and signposted off it. Look out for the mounds of Macedonian tombs on both sides of the road as you approach. You could get here on a bus, but the easiest way...More

The site itself has some lovely mosaics, but the nearby museum makes sense of it all. This prehistoric settlement is one of the most interesting places I have visited from the Ancient Greek and Roman world. Such a richly cultural heritage that was home to...More

The ticket for the museum includes also a visit to the archaeological site and one tomb in the village, but it is important to know that the tomb closes in 2 PM, so if one wants to see it has to come earlier. We didn't...More

Beautiful spot, the birthplace of Alexander the Great. You can walk around the ancient ruins (entrance fee included in the ticket price to the museum) and see the advances that the Macedonian greeks had nearly 2,500 years ago. Although not as awe inspiring as other...More

Big site with lots of mosaic floors. Takes a while to cover the area and some parts are a bit tricky to get to, but well worth walking around.

Around this time of the year, the museum and the archeological site are not busy. Walking around the site (after having visited the museum) gives a great idea of how life must of been here during the kingdom of Alexander the Great.
