Lake and island Tips (2)

Favorite thing visit the ISLET ON THE LAKE. A Very picturesque place. Frequent boat departures from 'molos' (every half an hour during the summer). You can visit the house where Ali-Pasha's killing and decapitation took place (there's a small museum and wood-carving shop there), visit the 'secret school' in Filanthropinon Monastery (note an unusual fresco of Ancient Greek Philosphers on the cathedral's wall!). And then you can have a lunch or dinner in the restaurants that offer fresh fish, trout or even roasted frog...legs! (local dish!)...

Favorite thing I love the picturesque little island in the middle of the lake, the place where Ali Pasha, the little Napoleon of the late Ottoman Empire was killed in 1822, the magnificent frescoes of the Medieval Monastery of Philanthropinon there. And of course the smell of of fried trout or fried legs, when at last feel hungry, drunk with local wine in a Sunday afternoon.

Fondest memory The feeling of the first sight of Ioannina valley withits Lake when you come from the Pindos Mantains, already visited the mountainous little town of Metsovo, just before, after a happy meal with local lamp meat and smoked cheese.
The silence of Dodona valley, the most ancient oracle of Ancient Greece and the ancient theater of King Pyrros of Epirus, the first and the only Greek that faced victoriously, the ascending superpower of Roman Empire, I feel like hearing the ancient blind poet Homer whispering and praying 'Zeus, God of Dodona...'
