Introducing Ioannina

Hip Ioannina (ih-o-ah-nih-nah or yah-nih-nah) is a bustling little city, though slightly melancholic (it rains nine months a year). The 20,000 university students here faithfully support the excellent eating and nightlife scene. Ioannina faces sheer mountains erupting behind Lake Pamvotis; the best views are from Kastro, an old quarter interspersed with narrow lanes and Byzantine and Ottoman architecture.
