An Evening In Ioannina

This really is another side of Greece. Isolated in the mountains as it is, the town is frequented mainly by locals and a few hardy tourists but if Ryan Air opened up a boat plane service between the Thames Estuary & the lake here, people would flock! It’s quite an authentic place; the walled castle contains mainly old residential housing with a couple of cafés, a museum and a Byzantium church. The whole old town area protrudes into the lake itself while the rest of the town offers the bars, restaurants &… sellers of ornamental silverware (see previous post) that you might expect. With a backdrop of the mountains on the other side of the lake, I can find little to fault the place. Apart from the ‘miserable bastard’ at the campsite… (that’s the guy on the reception David, not me!)
