Neolithic settlements, royal tombs with frescoed walls, gold caskets and gold wreaths and crowns, waterfalls, rivers, high mountains, verdant villages and endless plains are some of the things Imathia has to offer.

Veria is the prefectural capital, a modern town that still has several traditional neighborhoods. In Byzantine times it was a major center, one of the chief cities of Macedonia. Its past importance is reflected in its 51 Byzantine and post-Byzantine churches, many of which contain wonderful wall paintings.

It is only 12 km northwest of Vergina, which gained world-wide reputation after the discoveries of professor Andronikos in the late 1970s. The incredible wealth of the site’s findings led to the conclusion that Vergina was actually the first capital of the kingdom of Macedonia, Eges.

The excavations brought to light the acropolis, well-preserved sections of the walls, foundations of Hellenistic houses, the palace, theater, a temple and to the north of the ancient city, the cemetery.

However, the most important monument at Vergina is the complex of royal tombs, discovered in 1977 - 1978. The largest one of them belonged to Philip II, a smaller one to a young prince, perhaps Alexander, and the third –square in shape– to a woman. Southwest of Veria, on the slopes of Vermion (18km), lies the village of Kastanies, which is usually snowed-in during the winter. This is the site of the monastery of the Panagia Soumela, founded by refugees from the Pontos.

At Kato Vermio (26 km from Veria), all that snow is put to good use at the Seli ski center (1.400 meters altitude). A town noted for its waterfalls, its wine, its fruit and its Carnival customs is Naoussa. Situated 19 km from Veria in a green, well-watered region, it is very picturesque with traditional houses and the Arapitsa river running through it.

Near Naoussa is the village of Lefkadia, where Macedonian tombs and the remains of Hellenistic buildings have been found.
Finally, 9 km northeast of Veria at Nea Nikomidia, excavations have revealed traces of a Neolithic settlement of the 7th millennium BC, which is the oldest agricultural settlement along with Sesklo in Thessaly.
The terra–cotta woman shaped idols, as well as many frog figurines made of steatite are among the most interesting exhibits of Veria's Archaeological Museum.
