|Paul's jail cell in Philippi|
Perhaps most interesting is a site marked as a place where Paul was imprisoned in Philippi, and which resulted in the conversion of his jailer (See Acts 16:16-34).
After our extensive exploration of Philippi, we boarded the coach and took the short ride to the seaside town of Kavala where we split up and ate lunch at two lovely outdoor seafood restaurants. A short time to explore afterwards, then it was off to our nearby hotel where we had a chance to rest before dinner and a reasonably early night.
