We were able to visit both of the accessible tombs as we were leaving the Naousa area, and they were an unforgettable highlight to our time in the area. The painted colors on the facades, and much of the artwork is amazingly well preserved considering the age of these tombs and the fact that they were buried for much of... More

Among the Macedonian graves of the area, this is the largest known Macedonian tomb. It is the only Macedonian tomb with a two-floor facade, with alternating Doric and Ionic order. Four Doric semi-columns and two pilasters in the corners support the epistyle and the Doric frieze. The painted representation of the facade is unique. It is made up of four... More

We could only actually see two of the listed four tombs. The other two are not accessible. The two tombs you can see are really neat. They are underground and cold. They are also some of the largest I've seen yet.

We were thrilled to be able to visit this tomb which is still under restoration. The caretaker at the Gardens of Aristotle arranged it and we were very lucky to get in. The great thing was that whereas at Vergina you can only see the outside of the tomb, since this is being restored, you can see the two inner... More

You got three tombs, small, medium and extra large. It is worth visiting, after a day in Edessa (waterfall), Naoussa's multi level beauty and Veria.

We had to ring the Archiological department to gain access to the tomb of Jugddement as it is still being renovated, but it's worth the effort. Our Hotel owner helped by doing the arranging in Greek!

Is necessary if you visit cities like Veria and Naoussa spend the archaeological site of Vergina.Throughout the history of Alexander the great will enliven this beautiful part of Makedonia Greece.
