This ethnografic is located in a former Mosque from the Otoman's period, there is not richness of exihibits but quite important, the exhibition shows in very percepible way the good and pleasant relationship between the three religions habitant Jew, Christians and Muslems in the past.

I think you must visit this one. It tells you the story of a man who became a factor of power within the empire and within Europe. And you might learn that this piece of Greece is about 100 years a part of this nation.

I am fascinated by the story of Ali Pasha and I found this little museum in his home on the island intriguing. Very simply but effectively done. My only dislike was the room showing the drowning, it had a sinister feel to it. Otherwise I...More

The island is 5 minutes by boat from Ioannina. There are many shops where you can find traditional delicacies (baklava, pasteli) and crafts. The museum is nice showing how people and especially Ali Pasha used to live at that time. I would recommend a visit...More

Indeed the ferry is behind the castle and in front of the information kiosk. if you reach the lake in front of Mavili Square you will see the little boat. You will not miss it.
