I visited Filippi as I'm interested in the missionary journeys of Paul the apostle. The site lay undiscovered for many years but has been unearthed brilliantly. Plenty of interesting things to see, the prison cell referred to in the bible that Paul escaped from, mosaic floors, amphitheater etc. The tour we took also took us to the place referred to... More

There is so much to see here, and also plenty still underground not yet excavated(!) I agree with the advice about coming as early in the morning as possible, wearing hat and sunscreen and bringing water with you. There is a nice, large cafe for refreshments but this can fill up after a couple of buses have unloaded. The site... More

it is a quite big place with a little museum. In the museum there is some gold jewels and some capitals on the second floor. Outdoor there is a ancient theatre-very nice and the view is fantastic. It is very close to the city of Kavala.

A very interesting old city full with history. Very close to Kavala. The sight is very big and it takes a few hours to see the whole place.

I learned so much! I learned about the Apostle Paul's visit here, as well as about the Roman ruins. You need to be in pretty good shape to negotiate these ruins.

A great site and a must if you are in the area. Also make sure you visit the church of Saint Lydia. There is also an outdoor part of the church by the river where baptisms take place. I think that this is the nicest part of the church! Definitely a must!
