PREVEZA (Πρέβεζα)

Preveza town is located at the mouth of Amvrakikos Gulf in Western Greece. The town was built on the site of ancient Vereniki town, which was founded by Pyrrhus, the Greek King of Epirus in 290 BC. Preveza was built during the late 11th century after ancient Nikopolis town was deserted. It was conquered many times across the centuries until it became part of Greece in 1912. Preveza has a vaguely Italian style, thanks to centuries of connection. And thanks to a large international yacht harbor, the town is livelier and more stylish than its small size would suggest, with a lovely pedestrian waterfront and an old quarter with narrow slab-paved backstreets. We did stroll along the harbor and the old town in the late afternoon. Then we took again our favorite Gyros (3,30 EUR) and later in the evening Mamos beer (Μάμος) for 5 EUR / 0,5 l in a lovely bar (other places charge even 6 EUR / 0,5 l).
