Preparing your trip to Kavala: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

1. If you plan to visit the city in summer, don’t forget to take sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat because the temperature is usually 30-33 °C. The temperature of water can rise up to 26°C. In winter, it is not too cold in Kavala. The average temperature is 8-10 °C, so don’t forget to take clothes and shoes for mild winter.
2. Vacationers can use buses, ferry, boats, rented cars and bicycles, and taxi to get around the city. There are quite many car rental services, but the public transport system is also well-developed in Kavala. Inter-city connection deserves praise. It is very comfortable to use long-distance buses to move between different cities.
3. Local drivers do not always follow all traffic regulations, so tourists who decide to rent a car must be very careful. In order to be eligible for car rental, tourists need a credit card and an international driving license.
4. Taxi prices are not high, but travelers need to make sure that the taxi driver has the meter on. It is also a good idea to discuss the price of a ride in advance. Taxi rates are unified across Greece. It is possible to catch a taxi on the street, by phone or online. Many taxi companies provide their regular customers with discounts and issue special privilege cards.
5. Don’t forget about safety measures. In order not to fall a victim to thieves, it is always necessary to follow basic rules, such as do not take valuables to crowded places, keep an eye on belongings, do not leave personal belongings unattended, and do not ask unknown people to watch your items while you are absent.

6. A slight nod with smacking lips is a negation (oxi or ochi), and nodding head upwards means yes (nai).
