Fodor's Review

One of antiquity's most famous cities, Philippi, lies just 13 km (8 miles) north of Kavala. Expecially famous for the battle between the assassins of Julius Caesar, Brutus and Cassius, and his heirs Octavian and Mark Antony. The site retains a significant amount of remains, including the Via Egnatia, several Early Christian basilicas, a Roman cistern and forum, and massive ancient theater, built in 357 BC, which is still used for the annual Philippi Festival, the region's most important cultural event. Many of the artifacts are on display at the archaelogical museum nearby.
