East Section Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Neapolis Gate, the entrance to Philippi (Fílipi) from Kavála, was part of the Byzantine walls, which still exist in places and were reinforced with towers. The section running north climbs up to the Greek acropolis where three towers were built in the Middle Ages. The area between the walls and the forum is still being excavated. The French School in Athens has discovered traces of a large palaeo-Christian basilica built exceptionally on an octagonal plan, a baptistery and a bishop's palace.
