Kavala

The first port of call for merchant ships from the Middle East, Kavala has been an important trading post since prehistory. In the 19th century, 'the lady of the North' was the hub of the region's tobacco trade. The Old Town, on an isthmus jutting out towards the undiscovered island of Thassos, is home to one of the most beautiful hotels in Greece.
