Spring in IoanninaIn spring everything blooms. The trademark beauty of the natural environment of Ioannina reaches its peak. The flowers and blossoming trees make the city look like a real life painting.

Summer in IoanninaIn Ioannina the summer takes on two different forms. You can choose the traditional Greek summer down the Ionian coasts at Sivota and Parga, or, if you are the adventurous type, you can find a secluded beach and camp out, where you can have the sun, sand, and the sea all to yourself!

Autumn in IoanninaIf there is a season that fits Ioannina the best, it's fall because that is when the city's mystery reaches its full glory. The rain and fog around the lake is combined with a rug of fallen leaves and make the city resemble something out of another era.

Winter in IoanninaDuring the winter months, you can indulge with a hot coffee in the Castle or a Greek meze in a tavern by the lake, overlooking the mountains. You can take a tour of the snowy mountain of Mitsikeli, or one of the countless villages on Tzoumerka Mountains.

Experiences

Exploration in flavors

Unique cheeses, delicious pies, well- cooked fresh meat with local vegetables, traditional noodles, trachana, fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs. If you visit Ioannina and don't taste the continental cuisine, you can't claim to have really gotten to know the city. How will you be introduced to the aromas and colors of the senses and good times, if you don't try the famous wines of Zitsa and Metsovo, as well as the locally produced tsipouro.

Sports-activities

The city of Ioannina is considered a sufficiently functional urban formation, with a modern, safe pedestrian network and a variety of options for sports and alternative activities. Pedestrians and cyclists have the ability of direct access to all important points of interest, with routes that cross or intersect the wider area of the center to the lakeside area.

Fun-entertainment

In a loveable city, which has been identified with the slogan "The colors of the fest have our own light", there is never a shortage of occasions for parties and extravaganzas. Different currents of expression meet at the crossroads of joy and fun and create unforgettable moments of joy. Sounds and sights mix with the mysterious atmosphere of the landscape, bringing a flood of feelings of spiritual upliftment.
