What you can expect

Your guide will meet you at Saranda port from where the tour begins. Next you will drive for about 35 minutes to Butrinti Archeological Park across Ksamil town. As you drive to the archeological site you can enjoy the panorama over Vivari Channel and learn about the Ali Pasha military outpost built around the 19th century to guard Corfu strait. In the archeological site you will be guided through its well preserved monuments beginning with the Venetian tower and continuing through the green vegetation to the temple of Asclepius and Agora. Next we walk to the Baptistry, Episcopal Palace, Church, the castle and Museum.
The settlement goes as far back as the Bronze age believed to have been founded  by the Trojan prince Heleni, son of King Priam. In the beginning it served as a trading post between the inlanders and the merchants sailing from Corfu. Later on it grew into a small town where the centre of the city was the temple dedicated to Asclepius, God of Medicine around the 3rd century BC. During the Roman Period the settlement became a Roman colony changing significantly. After the Roman expansion the city grows again during the Byzantine period when it became an episcopal centre. Later on during the Venetian rule the city shrunk in size and importance to become just a small fisherman village. The last period to be inhabited was during the 19th century when this area was part of Ioannina principality under the rule of Ali Pasha Tepelena.

In the end of our visit we take a coffee break in the Archeological park and return to the city of Saranda where our tour ends.

Saranda is a town located in the southern part of the Albanian coast and only a few kilometers from Corfu. Saranda is one of the most important tourist attractions of the Albanian Riviera. It is situated on an open sea gulf of the Ionian Sea in the Mediterranean, about 4 kilometers from the Greek island of Corfu. Near Sarandë are the remains of the ancient city of Butrint, a UNESCO World Heritage site, or Finiq Antic, etc. Saranda became important in Roman times as a strategic point along the sea route between Adriatic and Ionian seas with full access in the Mediterranean area. 

Butrint antic city is the most important archaeological site in Albania as it has survived form wars and natural catastrophes in milleniums. Butrint dates from the 7-9th century BC from Illyrian time (ancestor of Albanians), later becoming a Roman colony, then falling under the sway of the Venetians and Turks. Virgil claimed that the Trojans settled Butrint, but no evidence of this has yet been found. Butrint like other ancient cities had become a fortified trading city with its own acropolis, the ruins of which we can still visit. The rediscovered city is a microcosm of almost 3,000 years of Mediterranean history, and its 8th century BC fortification evokes the city's military power and symbolizes the rich culture of the once thriving ancient city.

Visit in Ancient theater, Roman public baths, remains of Aqueduct, Baptistery, Cathedral, mosaic, Lion gate, etc. Than we return to Saranda by having a stop for lunch at Ksamil in front of 3 small islands which seemed as floating over Ionian Sea. Transfer to Saranda, and walking tour in the city of Saranda (ancient city walls remains, synagogue, mosaic, Lekuresi Castle). Leisure time. Return to deck/hotel.
