The seaside town that overlooks the aristocratic island of Corfu is a lively and bustling port - the second in traffic after Piraeus- and a water gateway to the neighboring Italy. The unique landscape of Igoumenitsa, the capital of Thesprotia, enchants all visitors, while its multi-faceted history leaves no one disappointed.
This is a relatively new city that was rebuilt after the Second World War, although some stone tools from the Middle Palaeolithic period evidence that the area was a fishing village which was inhabited by prehistoric people.
During your visit to the area, you will find that both the city and the surrounding area are ideal for walking, running on the beach or in the mountains, sports or contact with nature. If you are interested, within a few minutes you can reach the beaches of Sivota and enjoy a more summery landscape.
