Also referred to as Lefkas or Lefkada Airport, this is the perfect place to hire a car and start your exploration of Greece.
Preveza is the capital city and main port of the Prefecture. Lined with cobbled streets and strewn with traditional ouzeries and tavernas, Preveza is always abuzz with a pleasant atmosphere.
Wander along the port which is often busy with boats and yachts during the summer months and admire the neoclassical buildings which frame the large port.
Day Trips Around Aktion and Lefkada
Built on Lake Pamvotis, Ioannina is only a short drive away. This city is bursting with culture and provides some fascinating sites to discover. Be sure to treat your tastebuds to one of the famous Ioannina desserts which are famous throughout Greece. Baklava and sker bourek are guaranteed to captivate you.
The routes around the lake offer exquisite scenery. Whether you’re on foot or travelling by car, there’s plenty to uncover here such as the caves of Perama. These caves are some of the most beautiful in Europe and date back over a million years. Take a guided tour which, with their stalactite chandeliers, feel like enchanted grottos.
Journey to the island of Lefkas where you’ll find gorgeous vistas and forests. The Lefkas coastline also boasts some of the best beaches in Greece. Porto, Katsiki, and Kathisma for example are perfect for soaking up the sun. Head to Lefkada Town where you can browse the shops for souvenirs or relax in a local taverna.
Parga is also worthy of a day trip during your stay. The combination of olive groves, fabulous food and stunning beaches will certainly make it a hit with everyone. The Olive Oil Factory provides a tour and is great value. A visit to Nekromanteion Oracle of Ephyra is also insightful, especially if you have read about the legend that surrounds it first.
