A whole lot of history
9km north of Preveza lays Nicopolis – thought to be the largest ancient city in Greece! This remarkable site, which translates as ‘victory city’, was founded in 29BC by the first Roman Emperor, Augustus – but it’s been abandoned since the 13th century. Today there’s a museum that’ll transport you back in time.
With heavenly harbours, blissful beaches and gorgeous green backdrops, both Parga and Lefkas are examples of Greece at its very best. There’s plenty to do when the sun goes down as well and Parga and Sivota are two of the top locations. But the vibe is more waterside dining than neon-lit clubs. .
Pick Parga if quaint cobbled old towns and postcard-perfect scenery ticks your boxes. This charming harbour village is a colourful base for your Grecian escape. Think pastel-painted houses, fantastic floral displays and traditional tavernas, with a sprinkling of local craft shops added into the mix.
