@Elloinos The Tomb of Philip II of Macedon, one of the most moving archeological sites I’ve ever visited
A Facebook post by the world’s leading Greek wine blogger, Markus Stolz, reminded me the other day of one of the most moving archeological sites I’ve ever visited, the tomb of Philip II of Macedon not far from Thessaloniki.
“During my wine tour, I visited the archaeological site of Aigai,” he wrote, “where the tomb of Philip II, father of Alexander the Great, is located. This was the most impressive historical site I have ever seen. Greece has treasures that are truly breathtaking!”
I took the photo above back in June, 2011, when I visited the same site after tasting wines in Naoussa.
Of course, you cannot take photos inside. But it’s simply one of the most elegantly maintained and most moving museums you’ll ever visit — truly stirring as you enter the tomb.
BTW, Markus was nominated again this year for a Wine Blog award. Voting is closed and we’re looking forward to the results (to be announced later this month). Regardless of whether he wins or not, there’s no doubt in our mind that he’s the top Greek wine blogger out there and author of one of the most entertaining and informative blogs in the blogosphere today. Go Markus!
