Pella & Vergina: following the path of Alexander the Great

With a kingdom that expanded all the way to Asia, Alexander the Great is one of the most emblematic figures of ancient Greece. Born in Macedonia in 356 BC, a visit to northern Greece is a great opportunity to discover the origins of one of the greatest emperors of all time.

During my stay in Thessaloniki, I took a guided visit with Ammon Express to Pella, birthplace of Alexander the Great and the historical capital of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedonia, as well as Vergina, home to the Royal Tombs of Aigai where Alexander's father Philip II is buried.
