Port city and gateway to the Aegean Islands, Kavala has oft been overlooked as a destination in its own right. However, it is a beautiful and fascinating place, a cultural centre with many museums and historical buildings and sites. It is also close to some wonderful and relatively untouched beaches. The mild climate and lack of tourist crowds in this underappreciated city make it an excellent place to pick up a rental car deal and explore gorgeous Greece from a new perspective.
Making a beeline for the charming mountain towns is just one option for anyone contemplating their itinerary after picking up a Kavala Airport hire car. Thessaloniki lies just two hours to the west, and beyond that, it’s not far to Ioannina, Volos and other central Greece highlights. If you’re prepared for a real Grecian adventure, you could even make the journey to Athens, stopping to take it all in along the way. Pick up your rented wheels, get a road trip playlist going and enjoy this ancient nation!
