Cities[edit]

Get in[edit]

By Boat[edit]

Kavala is a major port. it is possible to reach it by ferry from Thessaloniki, Samothrace, Lemnos, and several other north Agean islands. With a bit of careful planning, or aimless wandering, it is possible to reach Kavala from almost any Greek island with a ferry via other islands.

By train[edit]

There is a fairly regular train service from Thessaloniki

By plane[edit]

There is "Alexander the Great" airport about 20 km from Kavala. Planes, mostly touristic charters, fly all over Europe.

Air Berlin will operate every Monday and every Friday from 2 May 2008 to 31 October 2008 (Flights to/from Berlin, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich, Nuremberg, Vienna). Aegean (Flights to/from Athens daily)

By Coach[edit]

Perhaps the cheapest way from Thessaloniki to Kavala is by coach. theoretically is is also possible to reach Kavala by coach from Istanbul via Alexandroupolis.

By car[edit]

If you are in a hurry and cannot wait for scheduled plane or coach services it could be worthwhile getting a taxi from Thessaloniki, especially if there are 4 travellers when the split price can approximate a bus fare each. Make sure you agree the price before you get in the cab.
