The Roman Amphitheatre of Durres was build in the 2nd century AD. At the time, Durres was called “Dyrrachium” and it was a part of the Roman empire. The Roman Emperor Trajan was leading the empire and Rome was flourishing.

The Roman Amphitheatre of Durres used to host gladiator spectacles and other events. It was an attraction for the citizens, travelers and merchants. The theatre could seat approximately 15000 to 18000 spectators. The theatre was re-discovered only recently in 1966.

There is a Byzantine chapel in the amphitheatre with beautiful mosaics. And you can walk along the pathway above the theatre and look down onto the arena.

The Venetian Tower of Durres
The Venetian Tower of Durres is a large round tower which remains of the former Durres Castle. The castle was initially build in the 5th century by the Byzantine Emperor Anastasius. The Venetians extended the castle in the first half of the fiftheenth century, when Durres was ruled by the Republic of Venice.

Today, few structures of the castle remain, only the tower and one ancient wall can be seen. There is a little coffee house on top of the Venetian tower.

Berat Castle
When we arrive in Berat, we will visit the Castle of Berat. The Kala fortress is an enormous castle on the top of the hill in Berat. From the castle, you will have amazing views in all directions and you can see the historical town and river below.

Within the castle walls, you will see a village-like neighbourhood, called Kala. Until this day, some people are still living within the castle walls. The castle dates back to the 13th century and there are many Byzantine churches within the walls and one Ottoman mosque.

Holy Trinity Church in Berat
The Holy Trinity Church is one of the best preserved churches inside the Berat castle. It will be one of the first buildings you see, as you walk up the hill towards the upper castle. The church is very beautiful and quite an eye-catcher. It was build in the 14th-century and still remains beautiful until this day.

Museum of Iconography “Onufri”
The Museum of Iconography is a museum with religious painting from several Albanian monasteries. The museum is located within the castle walls in the largest church on the premises, called “the Church of the Dormition of St. Mary”. The museum is named “Onufri” after the Albanian fresco and icon-painter.

National Ethnographic Museum of Berat
Just down the hill from the Berat castle, we will visit the National Ethnographic Museum of Berat. The museum is inside a beautiful 18th century Ottoman house. On the ground floor, you can see a traditional medieval bazaar with embroidery, woodcarving and metalworking shops. On the second floor, you can visit a traditional house with a guest room, a kitchen and a work room.

Mangalem Quarter & Gorica Quarter
Then in the afternoon, we will visit the Mangalem & Gorica Quarters. These are the traditional neighbourhoods build on the side of the hill. You will see hundreds of little white Ottoman-style houses. From the bottom of the hill, it looks like the little houses are stacked on top of each other. Therefore, Berat is called “the city of a thousand windows”. In short, Berat is a very romantic city with an Italian atmosphere.

Free time to explore Berat
In the late afternoon, you will have some free time to stroll through the old neighbourhoods of Berat. You can buy souvenirs, sit down on one of the many terraces, take stunning pictures on the bridge and try some local food. Berat has many beautiful architecture and traditional houses, which have been turned into restaurants, shops and hotels. After seeing this beautiful city, you will no doubt understand why it is a museum city and a UNESCO Heritage Site.

Overnight stay in Berat

Day 2: Apollonia UNESCO, Llogara Pass and Ali Pasha Castle

Apollonia Archaeological Park
Apollonia is an archaeological park in center of Albania. In the ancient times, Apollonia was an important Greek and Roman city. The city was founded in 588 BC by Greek colonists from Corfu and Corinth. However, it was during the Roman period that the city of Apollonia really flourished.

In the 4th century AD, Apollonia was an important economic city and trade center. The city was known for its famous school of philosophy. Cicero, a famous Roman public speaker, called Apollonia “a great and important city”. And the city was also one of the most important gateways to the Via Egnatia, which was a Roman trade route through the Balkans.

The ruins of Apollonia were re-discovered in the beginning of the 19th century. The park is set of a hilly plateau and it is surrounded by calming nature.

Llogara Pass
The Llogara Pass is a high mountain pass on the coastal road along the Albanian Riviera. The Albanian Riviera is the coastal area with the most beautiful beaches in Albania. The coastal road starts in Vlore city and leads to the South Albanian city of Sarande.

The Llogara Pass is the highest point on the main coastal road, at a height of 1027 meters. It is a beautiful viewpoint, where you can make a stop for a coffee break. From the pass, you will have a spectacular view of Palase beach, the Dhermi village and the Ionian Sea.

After visting the Llogara Pass, we will drive down the winding road towards the most beautiful beaches of the Albanian Riviera. The riviera has Mediterraenean villages, historical castles, Orthodox churches, white beaches, hidden caves and hundreds of olive threes.

Dhermi beach
Dhermi beach is one of the most famous beaches in the Albanian Riviera. Dhermi is a lovely little village with hillside houses and a long stretch of beach. During the summer months, it attracts young people and it has a vibrant atmosphere.

Jala beach

Himare beach
Himare is a larger village in the middle of the Albanian Riviera. There is a traditional village on the hillside, from where you can look down onto the beach and sea. There are several nice beaches surrounding the village.

Porto Palermo and the Castle of Ali Pasha
Porto Palermo is a large blue bay in the Albanian Riviera. In the middle of the Bay of Porto Palermo, you can visit the Castle of Ali Pasha.

The castle of Ali Pasha is a triangular-shaped fortress on a little island in the Bay of Porto Palermo. The castle is very picturesque and from the rooftop, you have a stunning view of the sea.

Although many guidebooks state that the castle was build by Ali Pasha, the Albanian governor during the Ottoman empire. It is actually not true, and the castle was build by the Venetians. Because it gave the Venetians easy access to the sea and it has the same triangular design as the Venetian castle in Butrint.

It is very likely that the written history was changed during the communist period. The communists wanted to believe that the Albanian Ali Pasha constructed the castle. Because it is more in line with the communist nationalist ideas. During the communism, the castle was used as a Soviet submarine base.

Saranda
Saranda is a vibrant coastal city in the south of Albania, close to the Greek border. The city is often called “the unofficial capital of the Albanian Riviera”. The large coastal city has a variety of restaurants, bars, clubs and coffee houses. In the evening, the entire city lights up and you can walk along the promenade by the water. You will have some free time in the evening to explore Saranda.

Overnight stay in a 3-star hotel in Saranda

Day 3: Butrint UNESCO sight and Ksamil beach

Butrint
Butrint is the most impressive UNESCO Heritage site in Albania. Throughout history, Butrint was a Greek city, a Roman city and a Biscopic. What makes Butrint special is the unique combinatation of archaeological ruins, which are surounded by water and nature. The nature has integrated itself in the historical sight, which makes it a beautiful place to visit.

Butrint is an archaeological park, where you can see ruins and historical buildings from all the different periods throughout history. Butrint was initially a prehistoric site, with its first occupation dating back to 50 000 BC. Then from 800 BC, it became a Greek colony. In 44 BC, it was taken over by the Romans, who built an aqueduct accross the Vivari channel to the main land. Then in the 5th century AD, Butrint was ruled by the Church and its Bishop.

In the 9th century, after briefly being abandoned, it was reconstructed by the Byzantine empire. In the 14th century, the Venetians controlled the site and strengthened the defensive works. And finally, Ali Pasha, an Albanian governer during the Ottoman empire, ruled the city. In the late middle ages, Butrint was abandoned.

Ksamil
Ksamil beach is a paradise-like beach in the South of Albania. Therefore, the Albanian people describe Ksamil beach as “the pearl of the Albanian Riviera”. Without a doubt, Ksamil beach is the prettiest beach in the country. The beach is set on a little peninsula with perfect white sand. And the water in the bay is a bright green colour and the clearest water you have ever seen.

At Ksamil beach, there are four little islands in the sea close to the beach. The most famous are the twin islands, which are connected to each other by a narrow strip of land. If you have always wanted to visit an uninhibited island, this is your chance. From the beach, you can swim to the nearest island. Or you can rent a boat or kayak to visit the islands, which are further away.

The city of Gjirokaster is known in Albania as a “museum city”, because it has beautiful historical buildings everywhere. It is a lovely city to stroll through.

Gjirokaster Castle
The Gjirokaster Castle is a large fortress on the top of a hill in the city. The fortress has a spectacular view of the historical city and the traditional stone houses of Gjirokaster. It is one of the biggest hilltop castles in the Balkans and it therefore dominates the city.

The castle was originally build in the 12th century by the local Byzantine government. But it was renovated and additions were made during the Byzantine rule, the Ottoman empire and the government of King Zog. From the 1930 onwards, it was mainly used as a prison for people who were resistant against the government.

Inside the castle, you can visit the Museum of Arms, which displays arms used against the Italian occupation, the German occupation and the Albanian Independence.

Old Bazaar of Gjirokaster
The Old Bazaar of Gjirokaster is the traditional market place in Gjirokaster. The bazaar was originally build in the Middle Ages.

The house has 9 fireplaces, 6 bathrooms, 12 rooms, 44 doors, 64 windows and 4 hamam turkish baths.

The house has been owned by the same family for generations. The family will show you around the house and tell you stories about it’s history. One of the highlights is the room used for wedding ceremonies, with beautiful stained glass windows, carved wooden ceilings and a fireplace decorated with pomegranates, which symbolize fertility.

Cold War Tunnel in Gjirokastra
The Cold War Tunnel is a giantic bunker underneath the castle of Gjirokaster. It was build by the former communist dictator Enver Hoxha.

The dictator was paranoid about a foreign invasion or a nuclear attack. In fact, he was so convinced an attack was eminent he constructed 750.000 bunkers all over Albania. The Cold War Tunnel was constructed in secret in the 1960s, and it remained a secret for the locals until the 1990s.

The Cold War Tunnel is 800 m long and it has 59 rooms, therefore, it could hold up to 300 people if needed. The bunker is empty, but the use of the rooms have been displayed on the doors. There were rooms for government ministries, interrogators, party elites, power generation, water storage, sleeping, de-contamination and air filtration.

Museum of Weapons Gjirokastra
Inside the castle walls of Gjirokastra’s castle, you can visit the Museum of Weapons. The museum site was originally a prison. Albania’s King Zog constructed the prison in 1932.

Impressive houses like Zekate House, used to only belong to the wealthy people, like government officials and merchants.

Inside the house you can see the original interior and imagine what it was like to live there during the Ottoman period. There are beautiful stained-glass windows, wooden ceilings and wall frescoes.

Obelisk Monument of Gjirokaster
The Obelisk is a monument located on the highest peak of the city of Gjirokaster. The monument is a symbol of education in the Albanian language.

For many centuries, Albania was a part of the Turkish Ottoman empire. Therefore, education in the Albanian language was forbidden for a long period of time. The Obelisk monument is located near the location of the first Albanian language school in Gjirokaster, which was opened in 1908. At the time it was very dangerous to open an Albanian language school, particularly for the teachers, who worked there.

Since the Obelisk monument is located on the highest peak in the city of Gjirokaster, it has amazing views. You can see the old city and the typical stone houses below.

Cerciz Topulli Square
