It is an interesting archeological coplex and is pretty well preserved. It takes about 2 hours to circle it and look around. There is a good place to eat next to it. Not recommended to visit it in the summer as there are snakes around and it is too hot to walk around the stones.

Historical place of great interest. If you dont visit it its like you never visited North Greece.I liked it very much because it reminded us of the tremendous achievements of Alexander the Great.

Great place, the remainders of a whole ancient Greek town actually. It could have been a little bit more taken care of. There are signs in Greek and English only (Bulgarian or Russian could be added as many visitors come from bulgarian and russian speaking countries). Interesting museum with exhibits of 4.000 years old! Do not miss the second floor!... More

We spent a beautiful day in the archeological area of Phillippi and the city of Kavala. The excavations of Philippi are very well preserved and the story goes back up to 361 BC. The forum and the Acropolis are still very well preserved. The city of Kavala is built beautifully on the hillside of the mountain Simvolon with a very... More

from Philip and Alexander The Great to footsteps of Apostle Paul, PHILIPPI is a unique place full of Greek history and art. To book in advance an organized tour is the best way to know and feel everything there..... -The ancient city of Philippi built on the fringes of the marshes that occupied the south-east part of the plain of...

I have visited Filippi twice now, once with an organised trip through Thomson 3 years ago, and once on our own this year. I much prefered our own trip from Thasos as it gave us more time to appreciate the whole site. I did smile at Milan C comment about it only offers stones!, but I am not sure what... More

Great monuments and history of ancient Greece, the Roman empire and later cultures. The tours of the site should be organized better and advertised to tourists.

This site deserves more attention from tourists. But, even more from its managers. There are some interesting things to see, but besides the museum (which I did not visit) and short explanations here and there, it offers only stones. Something like 3D model on the site, to help us to get the picture of how everything look like in the... More

It is an amazing place to see and do the pictures. You can see big piece of architecture. Much more beautiful than some commercialized places [Athens].
