Behind the building, the mall iw stretched, stores of which offer a range of options. A stop is essential at the many cafes. And keep your eyes open.

Before leaving the town center, do not forget the Archaeological Museum of Ioannina, a building-creation of the famous architect Aris Konstantinidis, which is hosted in the park "Litharitsia". In the museum you will have the opportunity to "travel" to the ancient cities of Epirus.

And since a walk in the Ottoman past of the city has began, go a little further to see the mosque and medreses of Veli Pasha as well as the Mosque of Kaloutsianis, the minaret of which, if you're lucky, you'll see a stork resting. Back to the city center, and from there to the Municipal Gallery. It may not be great, but it is an important cultural city cell. It may need a little walking, but it is worthy.
