Preveza is a town in the region of Epirus, northwestern Greece, located at the mouth of the Ambracian Gulf. It is the capital of the regional unit of Preveza, which is part of the region of Epirus. The Aktio-Preveza Immersed Tunnel, the first and so far only undersea tunnel in Greece, was completed in 2002 and connects Preveza to Aktio in western Acarnania in the region of Aetolia-Acarnania. The ruins of the ancient city of Nicopolis lie 7km north of the city.Origin of the nameThe name Πρέβεζα Preveza is of uncertain etymology. There are three hypotheses about its origin: from the old Slavic word prevoz meaning "crossing, passage" (Diogenes Charitonos and Fyodor Uspeski); or from the old Albanian word prevëzë-za, meaning transportation (Petros Fourikis and Konstantinos Amantos); or from the Latin word prevesione, meaning sustenance (victuals) (Max Vasmer, Peter Schustall, Johannes Conter).MunicipalityThe present municipality Preveza was formed at the 2011 local government reform by the merger of the following 3 former municipalities, that became municipal units : Louros Preveza Zalongo
