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 stopped here with my dad and fiance and wwe were blown away with how great it was. The man who worked admission was so smart and cool. The value was great and we were there about 2 hours. My dad bought his wife a nice necklace in the gift shop and we have great memories. It is right off... More

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.
