Full description
Apart from its modern history, Epirus is also widely known for its glorious ancient past. Your tour starts from Dodona, with its mysterious Oracle and magnificent ancient theatre which offers an impressive view on mount Tomaros. Then follow in the steps of the legendary Ulysses, whose journey back home to Ithaca lasted more than 10 years and then visit the oracle of the dead, Necromanteion.

Taste local cuisine, wander the labyrinthic alleyways and explore Parga, the seaside town under the shadow of the old Venetian fortress.  

After lunch, head to the Roman Nicopolis, a place where the fate of the world was judged after the famous naval battle between Marcus Antonius and Octavianus. After his victory, Octavianus honored his triumph by building the city of Victory, Nikopolis. You’ll visit the theatre, the Odeon, the stadium, the Byzantine basilicas and, of course, the sunset over the legendary walls of the city.
