Welcome to Epiros
South of these mountains sits beautiful Ioannina, a youthful town on a picturesque lake where days can be spent enjoying local life. The Ionian coast has long sandy beaches punctuated by archaeological sites. Don't miss the beautiful, and touristy, Parga, with its Venetian legacy. North of Parga, Igoumenitsa's ferries access Italy.
Reaching Epiros is an event in itself. The road from Kalambaka in Thessaly winds over the Pindos Mountains; from Macedonia, the marvellous Egnatia Odos Hwy cuts straight through them, into massive tunnels.
