The town of Kavala

In the past, writers and travelers have called Kavala “the small Monte Carlo” and they were right.
Kavala, a modern but quiet city of Northern Greece, with its amphitheatrical setting around the port, looks out onto the sea. In the old city, the remaining neo-classical buildings and the Byzantine Castle compose a magical colourful image and  make the city a unique destination.
The natural beauty of the area is another element of its charming aspect.  The coast has wonderful beaches, crystal blue seas with tiny rocky islands, but in the greater region of Kavala we can also find green forests and wonderful mountain scenery that will attract nature lovers.
Tourist destinations in the region, like the nearby island of Thassos, with its forests and its crystal clear waters, the Archaeological Site of Philippi, with its historical monuments and Mount Paggaio, with its numerous monasteries, are exceptionally interesting for the visitor to Kavala.
