South Epiros

This description provides information of ancient sites, seaside resorts, churches, monasteries, landscapes and small towns and villages. Additional details can be found in various books printed on Greece, such as the 'Blue Guide to Greece.' The names of places conform to the accented Greek pronounciation which would be the one a traveller would face upon a potential visit.

This is the seat of the ancient city of Dod�ni, a ancient center with as much reverance as Delphi. It is in very good state and includes a still used theater

with beautiful surrounds, walls and columns from the scattered ruins of the ancient oracle buildings and some other ruins from a byzantine church, obviously erected in the middle ages.

Dod�ni is not very well know in Greece and relatively empty of tourists (I was the only visitor). It is located about 30 kilometers south of Ioanina and can be reached with a bus. The nearby village of Dod�ni has a lovely and simple Kafen�o.

A beautiful village, situated between P�rga and Igoumen�tsa, built on the side of a mountain. Here terminates the new road linking Igoumen�tsa and P�rga, which is not open yet.

Agi� is a very nice village and has wonderful tavernas, which due to its altitude are pleasantly cool even in the midsummer heat. It is a great escape for those staying in P�rga. It is kept very clean by the inhabitants.

A lovely town, and the center of produce for the whole of the area. Arta is situated in the center of a vegetable production area and to the North of the Ambrakik�s K�lpos, which is heavily used for aquaculture and fish production.

A road here links Arta and Karpen�si via the South P�ndos mountains which is an exhilarating drive and gives way to some wonderful natural scenery.

A very beautiful town and a ferry port for those crossing the 1 mile wide channel to continue either to the island of Lefk�da or head to N�fpaktos or P�tra. It is very pretty with a lovely, well kept castle on the edge of the sea, used in past times as a lookout for ships entering or exiting the whole of the Ambrakik�s Gulf.
