About 30 kilometers from Kavala, Drama direction, lies the remains of the ancient city of Philippi. This city was founded by settlers from the island of Thasos, who when threatened by the Thracians, sought help from Philip II of Macedon, who fortified it giving it its name. It has theatre which is in fairly good conditions and the bathrooms are also in good condition. The theater is in fairly good condition, as are the bathrooms, and the fore as well as part of the agora. We can also see the remains of several Byzantine churches, some are majestic, like the call Basilica B, which was built in the sixth century. Also we can see some mosaics that will remind us of the greatness that once was there. At the top of the city there are the walls and the acropolis, which unfortunately we couldn't visit due to the heat.
About 40 km from Kavala Amfipoli, down the road from the coast we find Eleftheron Loutrá. These are some hot sulfur springs at Thermopylae style. The only difference is that here, they've built a spa to enjoy these waters in its 40 baths. There's an area where you can enjoy these relaxing waters for free. Following the course of the river to get to the birth of one of these springs where there are stairs leading to a small tub. The setting is spectacular, and the atmosphere is authentic in its tavern. When we were there, people were eating, and at onestage theygot up and began dancing Rebetika. Once in a lifetime opportunity.
