What to expect

Mixing history, nature and mythology, this full day tour takes you to see some mainland gems, which are only a stone's throw from Lefkada. You'll see Roman ruins at Nicopolis, cross the River Acheron by boat and wind up at the pretty seaside town of Parga.

After crossing over to mainland Greece, you'll make a photo stop by the ruins of the ancient city of Nicopolis. Learn about this ‘City of Victory' and take a few pics before heading to Ammoudia. Here, you'll board a boat and glide on one of the most mythical landmarks of the ancient world – the River Acheron. Legend said it was where the souls of the dead would pass through to Hades and the underworld. It's also home to many species of birds.

And finally, you'll reach Parga, known as the ‘jewel of Epirus'. You'll have free time to wander around, head up to the medieval fortress, duck into a taverna for lunch, hit the beach or browse the many jewellers before returning to the island.

    Lefkas Sunset Boulevard

    There's no better way to savour the atmosphere of Lefkas town than by wandering the maze of narrow alleys that make up the heart of the island's capital. Pause before picture-postcard churches with interiors richly decorated with frescoes and icons. See the Charamoglios Library and other historic attractions, too. And then there are the shops and tavernas. The buzz becomes infectious when you reach the main square. The head to the seafront, where the locals are enjoying their evening stroll before watching the sea bathed in scarlet and gold at sunset.
