After setting sail from Troas, Paul crossed the Aegean Sea and landed at the city of Neapolis in Macedonia. From Neapolis, Paul would travel inland to Philippi, a leading city in the region.

Context: Neapolis is a port city in Macedonia, in the northeastern part of what today is Greece. Pictured here is a bay near the city. Ships connected Neapolis to other ports on the Aegean Sea. An important land route called the Egnatian Way passed through Neapolis, connecting it with cities both to the east and west.
