Dinner and first acquaintance with the travel consultant of VIGO Travel. After welcoming you, it will inform you and provide you with the one-day (optional) programs.
Today Vigo Travel has curated a four-hour tour of Ioannina. The city is built on the west bank of Lake Pamvotida at an altitude of 480 meters between high peaks. The castle of Ali Pasha, the island of Kyra Frosini, but also the modern University of Ioannina, are reference points of the city, which combines the traditional with the modern, the new realities with the historical memory, the natural beauty with the development.
On the islet of Lake Ioannina, one of the few inhabited lake islands in the world, we will visit the Byzantine monasteries with the unique frescoes. We will see the house -last refuge- of Ali Pasha. We will walk in the cobbled streets of the old town, with the magical tsipouro restaurants and cafes. Then we will return to the alleys of the medieval castle as well as to the Acropolis where the Tomb and the Serai of Ali Pasha are located, where today the Byzantine Museum is housed.
Then we will see traditional silversmithing and goldsmith workshops that operate to this day. The modern development is expressed with the University of Ioannina, the Hospitals, the Nautical Center, the Egnatia Odos, the International Airport, the seaplanes, the rapid commercial and economic development and the spread of the city. We will end up in the wonderful historical and uniquely beautiful point of the city, the Frontzou State. Here we will enjoy the wonderful view of the city of Ioannina and the dazzling Pamvotida lake.
VIGO TRAVEL will welcome you with a “Gianniotiko” treat, traditional coffee and dessert. The tourist consultants of VIGO TRAVEL will inform you about the programs that we have prepared for you for each day but also about the alternative visits and actions that can be enjoyed by those who do not want to follow the excursion programs, to interesting and beautiful by car (rent a car ) that we have prepared for you, or participation in extreme sports (canoe kayaking, mountaineering, paragliding, etc.). In any case, we will be by your side to edit the best program for you.
