Preveza's location on the Ambracian Gulf has made it historically important throughout history. The Battle of Sybota took place nearby and helped to start the Peloponnesian War. This was where the Epirian leader Pyrrhus won his Pyrric Victories in his struggle against the Roman conquerors. And most significantly, the Battle of Actium between Octavius (Augustus) and Marc Antony took place here. In honor of his victory, Octavian had a city built to be known as Nicopolis (City of Victory) and the remains of the city are one of the areas attractions. Preveza's city center faces the east and features a classic waterfront with authentic charms little affected by tourism. The popular beach island of Lefkada is accessible with a short drive through the underwater tunnel and a bridge to the island. West is the historic city of Arta. Going north you can see the dramatic Dance of Zalonga Memorial, the ancient Oracle of the Dead and the resort town of Parga. With the completion of the Actio-Preveza Undersea Tunnel in 2003, traveling south along the coast and to Lefkada has become much less time-consuming.
