What to Expect

Enjoy a day trip to the country of Albania Following your departure from Corfu, you will cruise along the Albanian shores to reach the port of Ag. Saranda city.

Moving on from the mainland, you will pass small picturesque villages and endless fertile plains leading to a great lake. The highlight of your day will be the excursion to Butrint – designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 1997. Over the centuries, the ancient town had disappeared under layers of silt and vegetation – but archaeologists have uncovered one of the best remains of a working town in the Mediterranean. At the edge of the lake where the ancient city of Vouthrota is situated, with it’s well maintained archaeological monuments and ancient theater, you will be taken 2500 years back in time to the 3rd century A.D. The ancient gymnasium, the Roman ablutions, the ancient temple with the priceless mosaic floor and the enormous stone walls will take you back to a time not known to man. You will then head to the castle of Ali Passa, an oddment of the Ottoman Empire, which will provide you with a panoramic view of the Ancient City. On the return journey, you will have the option to stop at a restaurant for lunch (at own expense). Then, you will return to the city of Ag. Saranda where you will have free time to roam before your journey concludes with hotel drop-off.
