Description

DAY TRIP TO SARANDA AND BUTRINT NATIONAL PARK

After our departure from the port of Corfu we sail along the Albanian coastline to the port of Saint Saranda. Once through passport control, the local guide will introduce you to the ancient city of Saint Saranda and it's fascinating history that dates back to 520AD. 

A 20 km drive by coach through picturesque villages, along the interesting south coast of Albania, is Butrint.  Designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 1997, the area is surrounded by a lagoon and is one of the most interesting archaeological sites in the region. Butrint is one of the best examples of a working Mediterranean town that had been covered by centuries of silt and dust.

The ancient city of Vouthrota is located at the edge of the lagoon.  The site consists of well preserved archaeological monuments and an ancient theatre. Dating from the 3rd century the temple, with its enormous stone walls and stunning mosaic floor are impressive, there are Roman baths and an ancient gymnasium to view as well.

The castle of Ali Passa, a construction from the days of the Ottoman Empire, is on the topmost level of Vouthrota City.  From the castle’s highest terrace, there is panoramic view of the ancient city, the lagoon and the vast plains beyond.

Upon returning to Saint Saranda, a buffet lunch will be served, this is included in the price of the Butrint tour. After lunch there will be enough time to stroll around the town, do some souvenir shopping or have a quick dip in the sea.
