Kavala (Philippi), Greece

Kavala (Philippi), Greece

Clinging to the foothills of Mt. Symvolo, the city of Kavala rises like an amphitheater out of the sea. Known as the “heart of Eastern Macedonia”, with historical monuments and buildings almost too plentiful to list, there is no shortage of deep history in this vital port. Perched atop the town, the Castle of Kavala sits like the crown jewel, with traces of Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish influence. Don’t miss the impressive 60 arches of Kamares, the old medieval aqueduct, built to bring water from the mountains to the Old Town of Panagia. Take in the classic Islamic architecture of Imaret, built by the founder of the last Egyptian dynasty, Mehmet Ali, and now home to a luxury boutique hotel. Get up close to the city’s character on its many cobblestone streets, buzzing cafés, fine beaches and views of the crystal blue waters of the Aegean.
