Filippi is a very interesting site, with the remains of an early Christian church on top of the ancient Greek ruins of the city built by Philip the second, the father of Alexander the Great. The ancient theatre holds performances every Summer and the museum is very interesting and not too big. The cafe makes a lovely end to the... More

The site has a large amphatheater and a nice museum. There was a cafe at the end so you could cool off after looking at the site.

The history here almost comes alive with a good guide, the ruins are still being excavated in many areas, but the scale of the ruins is amazing. One of the better archeological areas to visit in Northern Greece

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.
