About this tour

The ancient city of Butrint is the biggest and the most important archaeological  site in Albania, part of the UNESCO world heritage sites. A visit to Butrint is like walking through the pages of history, viewing Roman villas, beautiful and richly- coloured mosaics, early Christian basilicas, and city walls and gates, all featuring a variety of architectural styles from across the centuries. It’s peaceful, full of history, and beauty. Ksamil will be our next destination! You will feel like you are exploring some tropical paradise when being on its white sandy beaches with the view of the four islands in front of the beaches. Ksamil is the pearl of the Albanian Riviera and it surely is one of the best beach destinations in Europe. Lunch is server upon your return to Saranda. There will be a walking tour of Saranda, after which we stop at the Blue Eye Natural Spring – a truly magical place. The deep, dark middle and clear blue water surrounding the centre resembles a pupil and iris. It’s at least 50m deep, but the hight-pressure water has made has made it impossible to explore further. Here, you’ll have plenty of time to explore and swim in the pools before heading back to Gjirokaster – beware, the water is a cool 10 degree all year round.

You will have time to explore the area.
