The ancient town of Preveza offers culture, relaxation and natural beauty. Situated on a thin strip of land on mainland Greece, the town is a combination of laid-back island life and cosmopolitan charm. Preveza and its neighbouring towns of Sovita and Parga are often called the Amalfi Coast of Greece, thanks to their pretty harbours and colourful houses. Preveza holidays are a convenient half hour’s drive from Lefkada’s most beautiful beaches.
The Ionian island is separated from Preveza by a floating bridge, which boasts incredible views across a lagoon famous for its thriving bird population. The town centre has early examples of Byzantine and Venetian architecture, and you can spend the evening drinking ouzo with the locals at one of its lively bars. Whether you’re looking for a family beach escape or a captivating city break, holidays to Preveza are brimming with possibilities.
