Description

Discover enigmatic and mostly unknown Albania on a guided day trip from Corfu. We sail to the port city of Agioi Saranda to enjoy a short coffee break before a 20-kilometer guided bus tour of the southern coast and its virgin shores and islands.

Our tour takes us through small villages and the endless fertile plains that lead to a great lake and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Butrint, where the ancient Greek city of Buthrotum has been partly uncovered by archaeologists only recently under layers of silt and vegetation.

Visit the Venetian tower and see the remains of the theatre and the Temple of Asclepius. You can also admire the ruins of the ancient gymnasium and Roman Baths and inspect the invaluable mosaic floor in the Roman Baptistery. You are going to feel like time-traveller as you explore the Cyclopean walls and admire panoramic views of the lake and plains from the top of the hill. After sightseeing, we return to Agioi Saranda for lunch, and then a walking tour before sailing back to Corfu.
