Arriving at Igoumentsa by ferry is fantastic. Drive down in direction south and follow the amazing coastline. The first beautify is definitely Parga…..wonderful. Continue to the south and pass the city of Preveza. Preveza has an airport. From Preveza it is only a few km’s driving to Lefkada as there is a bridge between the island and the mainland. But please decide not to come to Lefkada for this time and follow the coastline to Palairos and Mitikas and finally Astakos. The region is called West Greece. From Astakos you can take the ferry to Itaka and Cephalonia.
NB. The village of Mitikas is 45 km southerly from the airport Preveza and 35 km northerly from Astakos. The small village Mitikas, which extends along a bay, protected by the offshore island Kalamos. Mitikas is a rather sleepy little city with an approx. 3.5 km long beach and the deep blue waters of the Ionic sea in front of the door.
