Ioannina is set on the placid Pamvotis Lake and faces sheer mountains. This idyllic setting is further enhanced by an evocative old quarter-the Kastro, interspersed with narrow lanes and architectural wonders from Byzantine and Ottoman times. The lake with the island, the cave, the modern buildings and shopping centers coexist with the well-preserved buildings of the beautiful old city, the imposing monuments, the picturesque neighborhoods, the popular-art workshops, the pedestrian walkways and the large squares. It is a city that gives the chance to experience a world where Jewish, Muslims and Christians have been meeting and mixing over the centuries against the breathtaking backdrop of a castle town that evokes the spirit of a distant past.


Byzantine finds can be seen at the 'little island' of Kyra Frosyni and monasteries with splendid frescoes, together with the legendary Ali Pasha's house - last refuge. The Byzantine museum at Ioannina situated in the medieval castle within the citadel is also worth visiting. The tomb and the headquarters of Ali Pasha can also be found here. A walk along the lake shores and the castle walls, next to historical places and buildings conjures-up legends such as that of Kyra Frosyni. She was sentenced to drown in the lake after having caught the eye of Ali Pasha who desperately fell in love with her.

The city boasts a wide range of sporting and recreational facilities including indoor swimming pools, football and basketball stadiums, theaters, cinemas, Art Galleries, Museums, dancing floors and many colorful bars and pubs. There are also countless opportunities for extreme sports in beautiful natural locations. It is famous for the production of feta cheese and for its popular art of golden and silver pieces of jewelry and wood sculpture. The Archaeological Museum of Ioannina exhibits finds from Epirus ranging from the Paleolithic period to Roman times. They include artifacts from the sacred area of what claimed to be the oldest-known oracle in ancient Greece in the Temple of Zeus at Dodona.

The Lake Pamvotis belongs to the natural eutrophic lakes with the type of vegetation called “Magnopotamion” or “Hydrocharition”. Floating vegetation is located in the water body of the lake with aquatic plants, such as the “lentil of water”, the “neighbor of the river”, “water lilies”, “irises” etc. Species with a limited distribution in Greece are also represented; for example, the “ferns of the water”.

The shores of the lake and the coast of the island are covered by dense and extensive reed beds. Furthermore, the lakeside vegetation includes residues from aquatic forests of willows, aspens, and planes, as well as limited wet meadows, which flood periodically during the winter period and become particularly important sites for nesting and feeding of the wading birds.

It is worth visiting Zayorohoria, on the northeast of the city of Ioannina which is a complex of 46 picturesque traditional villages built in a magical setting amidst pine and fir trees with a unique traditional architecture, impressive stone mansions and undulating, natural forest surroundings.
