A step back in history

The archaeological site is huge and there is walking involved. The theater is impressive and the museum is worth visiting (especially in the summer heat)

Look for the Filippi Festival going on during July and August - concerts, ancient theatre and much more.

Has been added to Unesco lately, and well deserved! Hometown of king Fillipos, father of Alexander the Great! Nice coffee-restaurant establishment right next to the entrance with a lot of green to sit and find some cooling off, with a playground for the kids.

We enjoyed a brief visit to the Filippi Archaelogical site. Large ruins, however, not one of the more spectacular sites that I have visited. Sabratha, Liptus Magnus, Rome and Athens are all much more impressive in terms of preservation and/or restoration.

We enjoyed our morning here. FYI: No back packs allowed. We enjoyed the biblical and other history. They have done a great job with the site. We did hike up the mountain. It was steep, but manageable. It had a great view. I would recommend visiting here to others.

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
