Preveza - Ionian islands
Situated at the mouth of the Ambracian Gulf, Preveza is linked to Epirus and the rest of the mainland by Greece’s first undersea tunnel.
When you exit the tunnel, the city greets you with a smile. Sandwiched between two bodies of water, the Ionian Sea and the Ambracian Gulf, Preveza will charm you with its lovely jetty, yacht-filled marina, dozens of restaurants and meze-bars, pedestrianised centre and stylish shops.
Just outside town, you’ll encounter Augustus, Antony and Cleopatra at ancient Nikopolis. And after that, there are some 60km of beaches to explore, from Preveza all the way to Parga.
