WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO FIRST?
A town built on Egnatia Road that spans two millennia connecting Europe to Asia. With its rich history as a melting pot of traditions and cultures, Ioannina's multicultural characteristics are still visible in everything, from its architecture and traditions, to lifestyle and cuisine.
Six amazing museums, a unique primordial cave, art galleries, twelve churches, one synagogue, sixteen monasteries, twelve well preserved Muslim monuments, and an array of townhouses and public buildings of architectural interest. Where do you want to go first?
The 10min crossing to the Island and a 30min walk on its cobblestone alleys will send you picking up echoes of folk songs and psalms of Christians, Jews and Muslims who lived on this land peacefully for centuries!
Cross dense woodlands and brave deep gorges in off-the-beaten-track adventures; marvel at the stone-built bridges, camp for the night stargazing over towering rock formations before the next morning’s punishing push for the alpine lakes. Anything you want... is in our nature!
Every visit to Ioannina is a life experience, you'll never forget. The unique combination of natural beauty, history, tradition and entertainment, a place full of sounds, tastes and odors tickles all your senses.
There are a lot of ideal vacation destinations, depending on the time of year you choose to travel, but it is rare to find a place that offers exceptional options all year around.
Ioannina is the ideal destination for absolute relax moments and intense fun times
Keep in mind that Ioannina is not the usual Meditterannean destination with the extremely hot summer! So cool!
Start your day off with a brisk morning walk by Lake Pamvotida and enjoy a hot cup of coffee in one of the many lakeside coffee shops. You will be rewarded with an astonishing view of the surrounding mountains.
