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 museum that is 1km away, is very interesting. Archeological site is not. Very few remaining objects.

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.

The archeological site from where the mosaics are at the Archeological Museum of Pella, presented partly as copies, partly as transported originals. I was adviced to visit the museum first and can fully confirm that it paid off to first learn about the findings, see...More

It's easy to find, right off the highway, and as you drive into town follow the little "museum" signs until you get there. The museum is excellent - one of the best I've seen in terms of layout, scope, information, and artifacts. Definitely go there...More
