Located within a short walking distance from the Archaeological Site of Vergina, Hotel Archontiko Dimitra offers spacious suites with seating area and fireplace. This small family run hotel was a great welcome for our first night in Greece. Angela, though barely speaking any English, managed to communicate with us perfectly. She is such a special person, and I mean it in the best way possible. She made us feel at home. The room itself was spacious, and extremely clean. Generally it's a very good value for money hotel, and I can warmly recommend it.
Offering all the comforts of a gourmet countryside retreat, personal services and serenity, Estate Kalaitzis is located in Metochi Prodromou, 2.5 mi from the town of Vergina. It is for the first time when reality has far exceeded the photos on the booking (in a good way). The location and property are absolutely wonderful. The ambiance, the way the rooms and common areas are decorated, the terraces, the courtyard, the vineyard, the ambient music, the kindness of the hosts, everything makes you regret that you can't stay longer. Surely this place remains one of our favorites in Greece and we hope to return with great pleasure. Do not miss the Vergina archeological site, very well highlighted and with splendid objects.
Guest house Olympia lies in Vergina town within a small distance from the archaeological site. Built among a lush garden, it offers rooms that open to a balcony. Free Wi-Fi is available in all areas. The location of Olympia Guesthouse is excellent and the owners could not have been more gracious and helpful. We we were a family of three traveling for fun - visiting sites of antiquities, and in Vergina we came for the Royal Tombs, which were fabulous. The guest house is like an Italian pension, or a Spanish hostel: a little old-school, family run, simple but clean and honest comforts. Don’t expect pillow-topped beds with 10 little bottles of bathroom supplies. Do expect genuine hospitality (we had fresh, sweet watermelon given to us on a hot, Zeus-stormy night) and helpful proprietors who directed us on our driving route to explore Aristotle’s Lyceum ( the Nympheum, where Alexander the Great studied with his buddy, Ptolemy, when they were both 15-year-olds), Mieza, and Pella.
Located an 8-minute walk from Vergina -Aigai, Mario’s house provides accommodations with a shared lounge, a garden and a 24-hour front desk for your convenience. The place itself is big and modern. Includes everything someone's gonna need for a stay. Besides the pretty nice room we had, there's a nice common area where we could easily work with our laptops. Owners were kind and peaceful. Bonus: There are 3 beautiful cats around. I managed to pet one on the second day. Cat's don't like strangers xD The location is perfect for visiting the Vergina archaeological site. Next to us (15km) is Veria. A beautiful city you should visit.
Set amid lush greenery, in Elafina Village of Imathia, the traditionally-built Mouson Melathron offers self-catering accommodations with mountain views. That was an amazing experience. I have never met such friendly people before. There are so many things to do and see, but mainly this is a place to relax. Food was home-made and of suberb quality. Home made pies, greek coffee, eggs from the farm. Try to walk in the forest and gather herbs from the farm. Vergina is also very close.
Studio Anna Veria is located in Veria. This apartment has a 24-hour front desk and free WiFi. We had to book spontanously on the same day for a short trip to veria to visit our family. Because of our late evening flight, we had to book an apartment with an easy check-in service. Studio Anna not only offered a 24h check-in, it even had a key box with a code. So we could check-in whenever we arrived without trouble. Especially in times like this there was no need of persional contact. Anna wrote all the information in the booking.com app and answered within short time if there was a question. Even check-out was with the keybox and without trouble The apartment was easy to find, clean, quit and exactly what was expected. There are parking possibilities right in front of the apartment. It's easy to go to the center by foot in 10-15 minutes and by car in about 5 minutes. We are so happy about Anna's Studio and her service. We will surely stay at het studio again if we go back to veria.
Amazing to share the same ground with Philip ll (his tomb) & walk in the footsteps of Alexander The Great. A different kind of museum constructed to make you feel as though you are in a tomb - in fact, I believe it is built directly over the original location. Then there's the spectacular display of the contents... The city site itself containing the palace was closed at the time of my visit Don't forget to visit Pella with it's very excellent new museum!
Nice little village with beautiful hills and so much ancient things to see. The museum and the tomb of Phillip II. is worth a view! Even if some people say that 12€ is too much - it is worth it. You see the tombs and so much exhibits. The ancient palace ruins are nearby - you can drive by car until the parking lot and after that you have to walk. Or - just like me - walk the whole way. It is around 1km from the center of Vergina up the hills. They are working there at the moment, so the palace is open for public from 10am - 2pm. The town Veria is around 11km away and easy to reach with car. The public transport is... yeah. Optional. :D I waited for the bus that was called for 12am and at least it came at 12:30. The day before there was no bus at all at this time. You have to be very patient and the "german accuracy" will kill your joy. The restaurants are wonderful as well. I had the luck to find a nice spot where I came back for at least four days every evening.
The tombs of Philip are spectaculars but do not visit the place without deep understanding of antique funeral rituals same as the construction of tombs in various periods of antiquity, otherwise is a lost of time.
Village on the site of Aigai the original capital of the Greek Macedonians. Few restaurants worth mentioning with the exception of a wonderful traditional Taverna in the old center. The reason to visit is clearly the incredible museum of the royal Macedonian tombs underground the massive tumulus. The exhibition of King Philip the 2nd, Alexander the Great’s father, and other tombs was breathtaking. A must see in Northern Greece...
Finding the archaeological sites was a challenge, so be sure to ask at your hotel for advice (or at one of the restaurants if you stop for a bite.) However, they have done an amazing job here and would recommend for anyone travelling to Greece.
The presentation of the tomb of Philip II, father of Alexander the Great is fabulous and well worth a journey. Other sites, such as the palace are still being worked on. Nearby Pella, which became the capital of Macedonia in Alexander’s time is also worth visiting. There is a very good new museum in Pella.
