When Apostle Paul dreamt of a tall impressive Macedonian man who stood in front of him and asked him to “come and pray in Macedonia” he decided to set sails for Neapolis. In winter of the year 49, Apostle Paul landed for the first time on the Greek mainland in Agios Nikolaos area closed to Neapoli (today’s Kavala).

Probably the biggest reason for people coming to Philippi is to experience and walk through the ruins of the city that had the claim of being the first Christian congregation in Europe. Philippi is a hot destination for people coming to Greece on pilgrimage tours and cruises.
