History of Kavala

Tour Description

Driving from the port of Kavala we pass by the most important monuments of the city.  Parts of the walls of the ancient Neapolis are still visible in the same place where now the byzantine castle of the city stands. The monument of Saint Paul standing next to the church of St Nicholas and the Roman- Turkish aqueduct, the main characteristic monument of the city, very well preserved. Through the main commercial street of the city, we reach the square of the Town Hall with the impressive restored buildings that used to belong to rich tobacco merchants of the 19th century. Leaving the port and centre behind us, we continue to drive along the coastline to one of the most picturesque villages in the area of Kavala, Nea Peramos, situated on the seaside under the hill with ruins of the byzantine Anaktoropolis.

From Nea Peramos we shall start or return journey to Kavala port and our ship.
