On the way to the south, the Municipal Campsite in Alexandroupolis is a very good option for a stopover just before the Turkish border, which offers good shopping, an interesting downtown and the very well-equipped campsite also a fairly good network of cycle paths.
Take advantage of the opportunity to refuel, as the fuel is cheaper in Greece than in Turkey.
Alexandroupoli is now one of the strongest emerging cities in Greece. One of the landmarks is the city's lighthouse, the Fáros on the harbor. From the port there are boat connections to Samothraki, Limnos and Rhodes. Depending on the day of the week, the connection to the neighboring island of Samothraki is up to twice a day and the crossing takes about 2: 15h.
