VENUE Return to top

The symposium presentations will take place within Preveza city centre (details TBA). The symposium has a child-friendly policy and welcomes presenters with their families in the academic and social events. There are several accommodation solutions in Preveza that include hotels (e.g. Dioni Boutique Hotel, Preveza City Comfort Hotel, Hotel Avra, Margarona Royal), villas, and Airbnbs. Untouched by mass tourism, Preveza is located on the North West mainland coast of Greece. It has an international airport and is conveniently located near to the beautiful islands of Lefkada (25 min drive), Paxoi and Corfu. Preveza town is an area blessed with beautiful landscapes, green areas, great beaches, a rich history, ancient sites and monuments. Sandwiched between two bodies of water, the Ionian Sea and the Ambracian Gulf, Preveza will charm you with its lovely jetty, yacht-filled marina, dozens of restaurants and meze-bars, pedestrianised centre and stylish shops. Just outside town, you’ll encounter Augustus, Antony and Cleopatra at ancient Nikopolis. And after that, there are some 60km of beaches to explore, from Preveza all the way to Parga.
