Acts 17:10 - 11

ESV - 10 The brothers immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, and when they arrived they went into the Jewish synagogue. 11 Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.

Berea (the name of which means "heavy" or "weighty") was a city that in Biblical times was in the Roman province of Macedonia. It was located on the site of the current city of Verria, which is in modern-day northern Greece. Other prominent New Testament cities that were geographically close to Berea included Thessalonica and Philippi. (Acts 17 recounts how Paul and Silas travelled to Berea after encountering Jewish opposition to the preaching of the gospel in Thessalonica.)
