This year’s July was the best of the three years for the prefecture of Ioannina, in terms of turnover presented by accommodation and catering businesses.
In total, they presented a turnover almost twice that of July 2019, the previous “normal July”.
According to the data of ELSTAT, in July this year, the cumulative turnover in catering-accommodations was 5,228,802 euros, more than double that of last year.
In July 2019, the corresponding figure was 2,818,125 euros, according to ELSTAT.
In Preveza, the most prominent tourist prefecture of Epirus, the figures were even bigger: 5,389,865 euros turnover this year in July, compared to 4,233,729 in July 2019.

The figures show the great rise of the prefecture of Ioannina in the “epicenter” of the summer, in a month that has never been “strong” touristically, especially for the city of Ioannina.
