I have read about Filippi because of Apostol Paul in the Bible. You can see many different things, like the amphitheater, the probable place where Paul and Silas were imprisoned, the old city itself with lots of old stones and some columns.

Very well kept. Informational. Make.tye trek up to the old citidel. Bring water. The arid conditions can dehydrate you. If you are healthy to walk, you can find many places and things to look at. If you are in a wheel chair, there are natural limitations that make it hard for you to see as much. The acoustics at the... More

It is worth visiting this place, as it is Unesco protected, but at the same time the view over there is breathtaking. It is like you used a time-machine and ended up in Ancient Greece!!!

One of the largest archaeological sites in Greece with much to see remaining still visible. A wealth of information found in the adjacent museum.

If you are interested in history this place is perfect. It is quite a big area so anybody with any walking restrictions would struggle. We visited in May and so the weather hot but manageable. I would imagine July and August if would be stiffling, however it is extremely interesting and well worth a visit

Filippi (Philippi) is similar to several other ruins that we had visited with theaters, market places, forum, etc. Its distinction however is that St. Paul founded a Christian church community here and the jail (cave) remains where he and Silas had been imprisoned. It was impressive for us to be at that site that is recorded in the Bible.

Allow yourselves time to do this site justice. It is extensive and the story boards, in Greek and English, are quite educational. We stayed much longer than we expected, and by the end had a significantly greater understanding of the architecture of the inhabitants over the ages. It is also a significant site for Christians because of the visit of... More
