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!

We got there as the gates were closing, about three in the afternoon. We talked our way in to take a fast look at the amphitheater and spoke briefly with one of the workers setting up the lights and props for a dramatization of Homer's Odyssey. We would have liked to stay and explore longer, especially since the light was... More

After visiting Kavala we drove 10 kilometers to this most interesting archaeological site with the well-preserved monuments especially the impressive Theater and Mosaics. We were unlucky enough to encounter massive rains as soon as we entered the site; we were prevented from seeing most of it, and unfortunately no pictures taken. If you want really to enjoy this marvelous historical... More

Went her on excursion from thassos. I did not really know what to expect. Bud never thought I would see this, it is amazing and unbelievable what we saw.... We had an local archaeological guide who told everything enthusiastic and straight from her heart.... Everybody knows knossos on Crete, bud this is much more beautiful and worth visiting

The ruins were very well preserved. The grounds were nice with a great restaurant located in the center. Nice green lawn with outdoor tables. Food was very good as well. Nice outing for a day.

The ancient Theater of Philippi is a lovely site that you must take time to see once you are in Kavala. The old forum is amazing. It is really worth seeing. Make sure to ask what time you can visit.

An ancient city where the Via Egnatia passed from and many exiled people met. A great blending of people from Thassos (the founders) Thracians , Macedonians, people from Pontus,Romans Bulgarians met, integrated and assimilated.One of the greatest battles in antiquity takes place between Roman armies on both sides.Do you homework before going there.
