Recommended Activities

The tour starts with a visit to the impressive Archaeological Site of Filippoi, a World Heritage Site of UNESCO. The ancient city is located 15 km away from the city of Kavala giving you the chance to explore both destinations in one day. Filippoi, also known as Krinides, was initially the colony of Thassians and owes its name to the first inhabitants who were from the homonymous island of Thassos. The city got its final name in 356 BC by the father of Alexander the great, Philip II. There, will have the chance to discover stunning monuments, great buildings such as the ancient theater, the market (agora) the royal hall as well as the first Christian Church on European territory founded by Apostle Paul. 

Next destination is the Old Town of Kavala, a picturesque place with interesting spots. You can wander around the Old Town, walk through its cobbled alleys, taste the local flavours and explore some important historical monuments of the city such as the Fortress of Kavala, the “Kamares” and the complex of Halil Bey. Kavala was also the first station of the Apostle Paul in AD 49. This makes Neapolis (today’s Kavala) the first European city to accept Christianity.
