We weren't expecting anything as brilliant as this site. Fortunately we had a great guide, Angelika. She is an archaeologist and incredibly knowledgeable. She made the history come alive for the city in all its various stages beginning in the 7th century BCE. Also the nearby plains of Philippi is where the legions of Mark Anthony caught up with and defeated the army of Brutus and Cassius after the murder of Julius Caesar. The history is palpable.

So much history!! Make sure to hire a guide to take you here. My favorite things were the theater - standing in the middle and hearing my normal voice project up to the (modern day) sound booth; Paul's jail cell as church tradition has passed down; the ancient toilets you also see in Ephesus; and the mosaic tiles above the tomb that was recently excavated. Such a neat site!!!

I have seen a lot of ruin sites in Greece and this one is good, but not great. They also have a nice little museum inside the ruin site (one ticket for both). There is a Greek/Roman amphitheater, a roman forum and the remains of some Byzantine churches. There are also some nice mosaic floors from the Roman homes that once were here.
What sets this site apart for Christians and those interested in New Testament history is the connection to the Apostle Paul, particularly the prison where Paul was held captive. There is a site that is marked "Paul's Prison", I don't know if that's the actual prison cell that held Paul, but at least we know he was in prison either there or close by.

The area of ancient Amphipolis has as a starting point the beautiful and interesting museum. From here you get information about the different locations nearby to see the actual archeological sites, like the ancient gymnasium, the city-wall and the ancient wooden bridge. Local guides can tell you the details about the sites that you are visiting.
