A panoramic view of Kavala's Old Town and Castle (Source: (Source: www.visitgreece.gr)

Kavala is a city located in Northern Greece. It is the principal seaport of Eastern Macedonia and the capital of Kavala regional unit. It is situated on the Bay of Kavala, opposite to the island of Thassos.


Kavala is located on the Egnatia motorway and is a one and a half-hour drive to Thessaloniki (160 Km west) and a forty minute drive to Drama (37 km north) and Xanthi (56 km east). 


Kavala is a modern, friendly city. However, its rich history that stretches from the 7th century BC to present is more than apparent. The Old Town (Panayia) with the Castle, the Old Aqueduct (Kamares), the Imaret Hotel, the Town Hall, the House of Mohamed Ali, and the Tobacco Museum are only some of the interesting historic spots. Apart from attractions and museums, the city also offers great cuisine -especially fish and sea food!-, picturesque streets for walks, and breathtaking viewpoints (do not forget to take photos!).


To summarize, if you are looking for a daily excursion near Nea Iraklitsa or Nea Peramos, Kavala is simply ideal!
