Our first stop is the city of Philippi, one of the region's most important archaeological sites which was originally colonized in 360 B.C. by the people of Thasos and later renamed Philippi by Philip II, the king of Macedonia.
In the site of Philippi you will be able to see the collection of artifacts and buildings which have been unearthed and restored, including the Roman forum, the commercial agora, the prison of St. Paul, tombstones, mosaic pavements, an impressive Greek theater with remainings of architecture and the baptistery of Lydia, the first woman in Europe that was baptized as a Christian.
After leaving Philippi, we are going to visit the beautiful city of Kavala. We will have the chance to see the Step where Apostle Paul preached, the impressive arches and then head to Panagia and see Imaret, Mohamed Ali square and his house. You can enjoy local cuisine in one of the restaurants in Kavala, before taking our way back to Thessaloniki or Halkidiki.
