Nicopolis is an ancient city that was built on 31 B.C by Octavios after the batle of Aktio. If you translate it from Greek to English Nicopolis, means the city of victory. It is placed just outside the town of Preveza. It is great for someone that is interested in ancient history to visit that place. Also the museum that they recently built near the ancient city of Nicopolis is one of the most moderate and intresting musuems in Greece.

Greece has difficulties to maintain all the wonderful places. This place is concerned by the situation, low maintenance of the ruins. But anyway, a place to visit.

The museum holds a wonderful collection from the nearby site of Nicopolis. It is displayed in a way that makes it easy to follow the history of the site and then seen finds from everyday life. When we visited we were the only people, so was very quiet and we could get really close to the items.

The museum itself is small, but it has a nice collection. If you can get out to the excavation site, that is really neat as well. There is a large collection of mosaics from Nicopolis. The site has basilicas with preserved mosaics and an old stone road as well as a fountain.

Visited as part of the visit to Nicopolis ; small museum, well set out and air conditioning so it's an ideal place to visit when very hot. Shows a good selection of artifacts and gives good historical facts about the area and it's long history

Surprisingly good and informative little museum. Well organized and with a good narrative about the ancient city. Small and manageable. 8 euro for the museum and the archeological sites. Museum takes about 30 minutes

It costs 8 euros and there is nothing to see. Lady that sells tickets speaks very poor English. She said that theater is also included and it takes 2-3 minutes to go by car, but we could not find it, no any signs. Sp my suggestion to spend these 8 euros for ice cream and wine 😀

Fascinating historical sites that can be visited for 8euros pp. This includes entrance to the museum as well as the main archeological sites. Insane how well preserved everything is! Dont forget visiting the arena and trophy little down the road (easy to find. But you can ask the guys at eather the museum or the archeological site)

On our way from the museum to the main archeological site, we turned right at the road sign for the taverna (39,05'N - 20,46'E). Simple but tasty family cuisine at an affordable price. The taverna faces a beach where you can refresh by taking a break during the visit to several archeological sites. At the main archeological site, we were... More
