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

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.

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

A bit of a disappointment to visit the site which has been partially excavated with many buildings uncovered as well as some fantastic mosaic floors. The originals are in the local museum which is great.
