Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The town was great. A lot to see and do, great caffes and restaurants by the sea. Great view from the castle and we took great photos from there. Must walk through the old town and see all the shops and tavernas. Little hard to find parking.

If you have the chance to visit Kavala, make sure to not miss this Fortress , located in the center of town. If you make little effort to walk along the steep streets, you will be delighted by enchanting views;)

Make a bit of an effort to reach the Old Town and Akropoli, you will be rewarded with some breathless views. The Castle itself, however, looks much nicer from the distance of the centre.

Great view. Wish I had more information on site. One hour before sunset is probably the best time to go for pictures. Nice neighborhood, interesting houses

The View is impressive but few information is provided for 4,5€ and few features. Besides, on the tower when we visited there was a photo shooting so already crowded and obviously you couldn’t stay in the middle. At least if we pay entrance, don’t bother and overbook the attractions.
4 out of 5 are given only for the view.

The view from the top of the fortress is stunning. It is worth the climb. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves beautiful panoramic beds.

Impressive castle above Kavala built in the early 15th century. Apart from the impressive tower and the former arsenal and food storage, which was converted into a prison in the 18th century there is not much remained. Great views from the castle walls.

Nice view of Kavala town. The ticket is €2.50 and you can get in until 18:00. There is a stage for theatre and music festivals. You can go with car until a point and then on foot. There is a cafe bar.
