Although Albania is just a short boat ride away from Corfu, the difference is remarkable – it’s like stepping foot into another world! For many years, Albania was closed to tourists but now at last, it has opened its doors in all its glory for you to come and explore- and it has so much to offer! In 2011, Lonely Planet ranked Albania as their number 1 place to be visited! We definitely agree with them!
We start the tour at Saranda, a beautiful coastal city which we will explore and roam. Here we will enjoy a leisurely lunch and admire the relaxing surroundings. We then move onto the fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Site, Butrint. The ruins show a historic period in time when it was used as a major trade point. Over the centuries it has been used by the Greeks, the Romans and the Ottomans who all added their mark to this archaeological treasure. Walking through these ruins will take you to the past and truly make you feel like you are living in ancient history! Explore the Amphitheatre, pharmacy and temples!
To finish a wonderful day, we will take a woodland walk up to a hill fort. Admire the jaw-dropping views of Greece and remember to bring your camera, as the stunning scenery makes for the perfect photos!
So for all those adventurous looking to travel the world, do not miss out on this Albanian Adventure!
