Neopolis, Greece Cruise Port

The northern city of Kavala—known as Neapolis in ancient Greece and Christoupolis during medieval times—is the principal seaport of eastern Macedonia and the capital city of the Kavala (Vatica) region. It’s one of the most aesthetically pleasing of Greece’s larger cities with traditional houses and humble gardens on the eastern side, and more modern shopping centers, contemporary buildings and spacious squares on the western side. Not only is it a lively port, it also acts as the commercial center and social nightlife hub for the entire Vatica region. Kavala is a lively market town filled with friendly fishermen, merchants, and other men and women who work the sea. Ruled by a variety of empires during its long history, the architecture and old buildings are a smorgasbord of various historical ruling classes in and around Greece. There are also beautiful capes, stunning beaches, and other natural wonders to explore.


  • When under rule of the Byzantine Empire, a massive aqueduct was built to better dispense water around the city. The structure still stands today, very much preserved, and remained functional until 1911.
  • View the city from on high at the Castle of Kavala. Rebuilt by the Ottoman Empire in the 15th century, the roots of the castle date all the way back to the 5th century BC.
  • Explore the depths of this ancient city with Aquaholics Diving Center, the most popular SCUBA experience in the area. The instructors cater to anyone from first-timers to seasoned veterans.
  • If the nightlife isn’t for you—or if it is, but you need something to do during the day—the streets of Panagia are perfect for taking in the traditional styles of various ancient eras.
