The Regional Unit of Arta is the southeastern edge of Epirus. 70% of its mountainous terrain are harmoniously elevated mountain peaks with countless spring waters, plains, rivers such as Arachthos, Louros and Acheloos, fertile valleys with citrus crops, while the wetland of Amvrakikos is the seaside. In between all the above are villages and towns built in the past centuries by Artinians who learned how to live with Nature, worship and respect it.
The city of Arta is the capital of the Regional Unit of Arta, a city built on the ruins of glorious Ancient Amvrakia, monuments of which can still be found today in the city center. The famous stone bridge of Arta, the Monastery of Parigoritissa, as well as Skoufa Street with its market are some of the many attractions of the city. Make Arta your first stop on your road trip around the area!
