Vonitsa is a beachfront town in the northwestern part of Aetolia-Acarnania in Greece, seat of the municipality of Aktio-Vonitsa. The town is situated on the south coast of the Ambracian Gulf.
Vonitsa is built at foot of a green hill. It is a modern city that has retained its sense of history and tradition. The tall stone houses, the narrow streets, the paved marina and of course the Venetian Castle on the hill revive memories of older times and create strong emotions to the visitors.
You will see ancient monuments, Byzantine and post-Byzantine churches, medieval castles and many other sites. The main attraction of the town is the Venetian castle which is among the best preserved in Greece. From the battlements of the castle, you can look down onto a small but imposing fort, which stands still upright, almost untouched by the centuries (Magoula). The view from the castle is amazing and you will enjoy a spectacular sunset over the Ionian Sea.
There are also many ancient temples and ecclesiastical monuments in the area. In the harbor of Vonitsa there is a small island, Koukoumitsa, which is connected to the city via a nice pedestrian bridge.
