According to archaeological finds, Kavala's Panagia District has been inhabited since the 7th century B.C. The city's strategic and economic importance over the centuries is attributed to its strategic position in Via Egnatia. Built during the Roman Era, Via Egnatia traversed the city, connecting east and west to its port and the natural fortification of the peninsula on which the Old City was built. Kavala endured numerous invasions and battles during the Byzantine Era. The city was occupied by the Ottoman Empire for several centuries, and Bulgaria during the first Balkan War and World War I. Following the Greco-Turkish War, Kavala entered a new era of industrial and agricultural development that was greatly influenced by the processing and trading of tobacco. Today, the modern city of Kavala boasts a unique character reflecting its recent past; the city's Neo-Classical mansions, large tobacco warehouses and Tobacco Museum evoke this era of prosperity. Kavala's lovely waterfront is home to modern buildings and tavernas, while fishing boats cast their reflection on the azure waters of the Aegean Sea. Among the city's most popular destinations are Eleftherias Square and Megalou Alexandrou Pedestrian Street, which features chic shops, cafes, bars and a tobacco warehouse that has been transformed into a bustling shopping center. Private arrangements for independent sightseeing may be requested through the Shore Concierge Office on board the ship.
