Preveza - A Taste of Greece
Preveza is a beautiful holiday destination located in the Epirus region of northwestern Greece. This spectacular town is situated on the Greek mainland at the mouth of the Ambracian Gulf, and its airport (Akiton National Preveza) also serves those destined for the island of Lefkada (Lefkas).
Before becoming a Greek state, Preveza was once occupied by the Venetians, the French and the Turkish. Today, this busy, picturesque harbour is dotted with traditional Greek tavernas and cafes where you can indulge in sumptuous Greek cuisine whilst watching the boats come and go. The open-air theatre, clubs and music hall provide sophisticated entertainment, while one of the town's four museum's will give you further insight into the amazing history of this ancient town.
With its scenic surroundings and idyllic coastline, Preveza creates the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday, where you can drink in the exquisite natural landscape, soak up the sun on one of the beautiful beaches or explore the historical archaeological sites.
As you would expect from a Greek town, Preveza is rich in history, and home to the Nikopolis (Nicopolis), the largest ancient city in Greece. Literally translating as the 'victory city', Nikopolis was built by the Roman emperor Octavian after his defeat against Antony and Cleopatra at Akiton. The ancient ruins and monuments are well worth a visit.
