Philippi & Kavala

Early Morning departure traveling via the New Egnatia motorway to the resort area of Asprovalta where we stop for a coffee. Continue our drive to Amphipolis for a visit of the Lion Statue.

Further proceed to St. Lydias Baptistery where the first Christian Lady of Europe was baptized and continue to the Archaeological Site of Philippi, founded by Philip II King of Macedonia. It was here too where St. Paul set foot on the European Continent during his second missionary journey, establishing a thriving Christian church. The ruins include the Forum Romanum with its Basilica, St. Paul’s Prison and the Theater. The famous road Egnatia, which once ran from Adriatic Sea to Constantinople, passed by this city.
