This famous old city has much history to explore. If you are into viewing and studying history you want to see this place. For Christians it has much meaning, but most remembered for the earthquake when Paul and Silas were in jail and the shaking opened all the jail doors and lossened their chains. Our groups really enjoy this stop and the Christian history there. If you interested in such a tour then you can contact us through our website.

The ancient theatre of Philippi was preserved in a quite good condition, with the alterations done by the Romans. It has been partially restored, in order to be used for the revival of the ancient performances. Such performances take place mainly in summer evenings, and watching one of them would be a great experience.

The museum was built in 1961 and includes four major collections of findings from the prehistoric settlement of Dikili-Tash and from the Hellenistic, Roman and Early Christian city of Philippi.
The architectural remains of the Hellenistic city of Philippi have not been excavated because they are covered by the ruins of the Roman city but a great number of Hellenistic grave stelae have been found on the site.
