Traffic Infromation

Roads in Kavala are modern and well-maintained and it's a joy to drive in and around the city. Opting for rental cars frees you from the often erratic schedules of Greek buses and allows you to plan day trips or weekend outings whenever you please. The airport is located near the town of Chrysoupoli on the main number 2 coastal route, while the popular town of Drama can be accessed from the number 12 road that leads inland. Many hotels have parking facilities for guests. Although there is free parking at Peristeri near the stadium, other areas of the city use a colour coded pay by the hour system. For example, one hour is red while two hour parking requires a blue card. Cards can be bought from kiosks or from the Visitors Information Center in Eleftherias Square. Parking zones are all over the city including by the square, near the port Customs House and at Rodopi.

Sixt Tip

Kavala is an exciting blend of the modern and ancient and affordable car hire makes it easy to explore. While it may not be as well known as some Greek cities, it's one of the country's most beautiful destinations. Enjoy a glimpse of ancient Macedonian history at Phillippi, the fortified town that was built by Phillip, the father of Alexander the Great, in 356 BC or soak up the sun on one of the beautiful beaches. Visit the Old Town of Kavala on the Panagia Penisula and climb up to the Castle. It was built by the Turks in 1425 and you'll be rewarded with spectacular sea views. Head for the port to admire the boats and promenade or stop for coffee in a quaint cafe in the business district west of Eleftheria Square. Be sure to visit the Saturday morning market for local colour and fresh produce or make the most of your car rental in Kavala with outings to local beauty spots.

  • From Kavala city centre: 22.8 miles, about 44 minutes

Hire a car and explore the Nestos Nature Reserve. The reserve is divided into two parts, namely the Nestos Gorge near the town of Toxotes and the Nestos Delta near Chrysoupolis. Both areas are home to hundreds of bird species and are on the migratory route for various raptors and songbirds. Even if you aren't a birdwatcher, you can't fail to be impressed by the floodplain forests at Nestos Delta or the towering cliffs and dramatic scenery of Nestos Gorge.
