The Greek Prime Minister visits the Cultural Route of Epirus

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis traveled to Epirus on Tuesday, 17 September, as part of his visits to various regions of the country to solve the problems of each region and to promote good practices in different areas.

The Prime Minister visited the archaeological site of Dodoni, advocating the program of Integrated Territorial Investment (ITI) entitled “Cultural Route of Ancient Theaters of Epirus”, strategic plan for cultural tourism proposed by Epirus which innovates at a national and European level, as it is the first region to try to adopt a holistic approach to highlight its cultural heritage and take advantage of its potential as a tool for development.

During his visit to the archaeological site of Dodoni, the Prime Minister of the country was briefed in detail by the Minister of Culture, Lina Mendoni, on the ongoing restoration work of the ancient theater. The archaeological site of Dodoni, as well as the archaeological sites of Nikopolis, Kassopi, Amvrakia and Gitana, are the milestones of the Cultural Route of Epirus. This route is the first concerted effort for sustainable development focusing on ancient monuments under the direction of a single management body.
