    Drive out to the ancient Greek theatre and oracle-site of Dodonae, nestling in a forgotten valley

    Taste the white wines produced in the vineyards around Zitsa

    Wake yourself up with a day’s rafting along the Arachthos river gorge, or kayaking through the spectacular Voidomatis river

    Or enter the dark world of the Perama caves, one of the mythical entrances to Hades

    Drive up to Metsovo and the Katara (‘accursed’) road pass, which in winter is a prime ski resort

    Look for brown bears in the forested Valia Calda valley

    Or spot birds and flowers in any of the nearby National Parks

    Visistors to the city of Ioannina must see: 1. the fortress and within it the Byzantine Museum, ruins of the Byzantine town and a bathhouse 2. the little island of Pamvotis lake with the Monasteries 3. the Perama cave, considered to be the largest horizontal cave in the Balkans
    a. The silversmith workshops presently operating in Ioannina continue the tradition, creating hand-made products of high artistic and aesthetic perfection, worth of their glorious past. b. other traditional products of the region are 'feta' cheese and dairy products with unique taste and quality.

    Epirus stone bridges

    by nelinka Written Jan 14, 2012

    In winter and spring time the mountain streams are full with water. These stone bridges were extremely important in the past for travelling and trade between Ioannina, Zagori and the territory of today's Albania.
