I have visited this site twice now & each time I've never been disappointed. Halfway between Drama & Kavala it is an ideal location to spend a day at, the site has ample free parking, a nice greened area where you can relax & eat at the restaurants.

It is not the most attractive ancient city, but the location is very nice with the mountain at the background. The museum is really nicely done, great display and very informative

Filippi is a wonderful, educational site and I would like to provide a perspective of someone traveling with a family member with limited mobility. First, we made arrangements for a private guide to pick us up from our cruise ship in Kavala. We found a wonderful guide who lives in Thessaloniki via the website Toursbylocals.com. That way, we would pace... More

I believe is the perfect place,where you can think about the nollege of ancient Greeks. In very good condition,and theater is Super. I believe that every christian has to visit it,because is the place where is the jail of Saint Paul and the baptestery of First Christian lady(Lydia)in Europe.

"Part of the Tentative List in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List" and this fact is telling the truth. I have been visiting the surrounding area since 1990 and there are still many places to go. Archaeological Museum of Kavala hosted a special educational programme on the completion of 100 years of the first systematic excavation... More

I don't know why I expected archaeological sites to be boring and confusing, but they obviously aren't and sites like the Filippi Archaeological dig do not disappoint. I learned and saw so many wonderful artifacts and structure here. I would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to the region. I'll definitely revisit the site as there were several archaeological teams... More

The well preserved archaeological site, and the museum, at a close distance from Kavala town, is a must see for history lovers. The theatre is also used for hosting ancient Greek Drama as well as concerts.

My wife and I were staying in Kavala with family so when they took us there well I was amazed my niece stood in the middle of the theatre and spoke softly and I could hear her all the way to the back of the theatre. As she was young and fit I got her to run around with the... More

Great history and a big site to walk through. Definitely budget 2 hours to take in the experience. I went with a tour group, so the tour guide explained a lot of information you can't read about around the site. It was only 3 euros per person.
