Spring of colors

In 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. The melted snow fills the rivers making walks through the paths of the Vikos-Aoos National Park priceless. Combine those walks with passes over the traditional stone bridges and you will make an unforgettable memory. Nature celebrates with a feast of colors, smells and sounds.

Dreamy summer

There is no better way to start a summer day in Ioannina than an early morning walk near the lake. Keep in mind that Ioannina is not the usual Meditterannean destination with the extremely hot summer. The altitude of the town, the mountains that surround the valley and the mountain water create a cooler microclimate. Enjoy a cold coffee (maybe a Greek frape), or a housemade herb cold tea in one of the town’s small cute cafes before you keep up your wander in the castle and the cobblestone alleys.

No matter which season you find yourself in Ioannina, the only thing that's certain is that it will capture your heart and enchant you...
