Metsovo Ioannina Adventure
Historic Visit in Ioannina and Metsovo from Saranda

Metsovo and Ioannina, in northern Greece, mix old charm and history with natural beauty, inviting everyone to explore their unique vibes.

Metsovo, a mountain town with stone houses and small streets, feels like stepping into the past. Smelling the wood fires adds to its authentic feeling.

The local food in Metsovo is delicious, with dishes like kontosouvli (spit-roasted meat) and metsovone cheese. Small cozy restaurants serve these flavors that are special to this area.

Ioannina, by Lake Pamvotida, mixes old and new in a beautiful way. The calm lake reflects the mountains, making it peaceful.

In Ioannina’s Old Town, surrounded by strong old walls, you find cute cafes and shops. Walking around, you see the city’s rich history in the buildings and places.

Ioannina has interesting museums, like the Archaeological Museum and the Silversmithing Museum, telling stories about the city’s past.

Food in Ioannina is a treat, especially the traditional pie called “pita”. Sitting by the lake in the little tavernas is a great way to enjoy these tasty foods.
