Preveza, the city-island of Epirus, is located at the southern tip of Epirus.
The city was created at the end of the 12th century after the desolation of Nikopolis and it was the economic and administrative center of the prefecture.
It is also its main port and communication hub between Epirus – Acarnania and Greece – Italy. It is connected with an underwater tunnel with Aktio airport.
Arriving by land, sea or air, Preveza welcomes you and smiles at you. There where the deep blue Ionian Sea and the calm Amvrakikos Gulf meet this city – island of the three castles with the wonderful waterfront, a marina full of sailing boats, dozens of restaurants and taverns, sidewalks and a historic center with refined shops will enchant you.
Just outside the city lays the ancient Nikopolis where you will “meet” Octavian Augustus, Antonios and Cleopatra. Afterwards get ready to explore 60 km of sandy beaches.
