Prefecture of Ioannina Off The Beaten Path

  • Syrrako

    We visited Syrrako on our way to other villages in Tzoumerka. It is a traditional mountain village about 56km from Ioannina city. We drove there early in the morning in late may (2014) from Ioannina, the route was beautiful and the location of the village is breathtaking just over the gorge where Chrousia river runs (tributary of Kalarrytikos...

    On your way to Zagori villages you will pass by Kalpaki, a small town with about 2000 inhabitants located 34km NW of Ioannina city, 30km south of Konitsa and 27km east of Kakavia (border crossing with Albania).

The ancient site of Dodoni houses the ancient theatre and the oracle of Dodoni, the ancient oracle in Greece.It used to be the place that the people were worshipping mother Earth during bronze era and later...
