Located in the east of Macedonia, in northern Greece, is the city and port of Kavala. The city lies on the Bay of Kavala and is just across from the Greek island of Thasos, and is roughly 160 km from Thessaloniki, 37 km from Drama and 56 km from Xanthi. The city has a rich history and there are many things to see and do whilst there. Dominating the top of the peninsular, where the old city stood, is the Castle of Kavala. Repeated reconstruction work and repairs to the castle's fortifications by the Byzantines, Venetians and Turks has left traces on its walls. In its current form, the castle was built in the first part of the 15th century on a foundation dating back to the Byzantine period. Other sites of interest include Kamares (the old aqueduct) which was constructed in the Roman/Byzantine period, the Imaret and the House of Mehmet Ali in the Old Town square.
From the city's port ferries operate to Agios Efstratios, Limnos, Lavrio, Kirikos, Chios, Karlovassi, Psara, Vathi and Mytilene.
The Greek island of Limnos lies in the north Aegean Sea and landscape and terrain is characterised by beaches and sheltered gulfs, a landscape of volcanic rock that is broken by small hills and traditional villages. The island's inhabitants make the best of the island's fertile terrain by producing a number of different local products which includes the Muscat of Limnos, a Designation of Origin of Superior Quality sweet white wine that has a golden colour and full bodied taste. Also produced on the island is Kalathaki (little basket) which is a white cheese that is left to dry and mature in small straw baskets.
By Ferry from Myrina, there are connection with the islands of Agios Efstratios, Lesvos and Samothrace (in the summertime only) and with the mainland to the ports of Piraeus and Lávrio (Athens area) Thessaloniki and Kavála.
