Preveza, Greece


Great beaches and a landscape of natural beauty

Preveza, part of the Epirus region, is located at the mouth of the Ambracian Gulf on mainland Greece and enjoys stunning views over the Ionian Sea. Expect great beaches, a peaceful atmosphere and a landscape of natural beauty.

Although this is an area largely untouched by mass tourism, you will find there’s a pleasant buzz around during the summer months when the port is full of luxury yachts and boats and the street cafes are frequented with holidaymakers. Preveza has a charming seaside esplanade and a pedestrianised centre so you can spend many a leisurely hour browsing the various shops and stopping to eat and drink at the bars and restaurants. Seafood is particularly good with grilled sardines, fresh mullet and tasty shrimps top of our recommendation list. Allow yourself a drink of the local ouzo too – it’s magnificent!

Archeological sites of note are the three castles of Agios Andreas, Agios Georgios and Pantokratoras and the Agios Haralambos cathedral with its clock tower. The Archaeological Museum of Preveza houses the major finds from the city’s long and interesting history.
