3 r d day: Thessal oniki - Free day ASIT- Optional/Alternative/Tips:  If you feel like seeing one museum, you can choose either the Archaeological Museum or the Byzantine Museum, equally interesting.  “Alexander the Great Tour” Pella - Vergina – Veria. A magnificent tour into the Macedonian kingdom. In Pella the site contains the ruins of the royal family’s summer palace, where, in later years, Philip II was assassinated and buried. The discovery of his tomb in 1977 was hailed as one of the greatest archaeological finds of the century. The rich and im pressive artefacts that were unearthed can be viewed there along with the tombs themselves and the amazing frescoes, rare samples of painting from antiquity. Next stop Vergina, the museum of Ver gina and the ancient royal tombs of Philip, the King of Macedo nia and father of Alexander the Great (our personal guide will wait for us for the tour).
