Once considered the capital of Southern Epirus, the imposing ancient city of Nikopolis boasts a number of imposing Romanesque structures dating back to 31 BC, including a lengthy aqueduct and 7 impressive Christian Basilicas. Built by Octavian to commemorate victory over Antony and Cleopatra at the naval battle of Actium, the site is perhaps one of the most notable examples of attempts to Romanize Greece.
Necromanteion (Oracle of the Dead)
An impressive archaeological site overlooking River Acheron, the Necromanteion is believed to be the door to Hades, the realm of the dead. In ancient times, people flocked to this ancient Greek temple to summon their late ancestors and 'operative spirits.' Thought to be the only oracle of death in Greece, the excavations of this ancient site sit just 20 kilometres south of Parga.
Boasting over 60 kilometres of shorelines, the sands of Parga region are considered by many to be among the most beautiful in Greece. One of the most notable has to be the sheltered bay of Valtos, where golden sands and azure waters provide an excellent setting for swimming and watersports.
