Day 1: Tirana
On your arrival at Tirana Airport, we'll be waiting for you to transfer you to the hotel for dinner and to relax for the night. Welcome to Albania!
Day 2: Tirana - Shkodër - Vlorë
After breakfast at the hotel, we'll pick you up and set off on a guided tour of Tirana to explore its most important places of interest. We'll get to see the emblematic monuments located around Skanderbeg Square, including the Tirana Clock Tower, the Et'hem Bey Mosque and much more!
We'll then leave the Albanian capital behind for the two-hour drive to Shkodër, one of the most ancient places in the Balkans and the birthplace of numerous musicians and painters, earning its recognition as the cultural capital of Albania. We'll get a feel for the city's legendary history and culture visiting Rozafa Castle and the Marubi Photo Archives.
Afterwards, we'll enjoy a delicious meal at the Mrizi I Zanave restaurant before setting off for Vlorë, where we'll spend the night.
Day 3: Vlorë - Butrint - Saranda
Having fuelled up for the day with a hearty breakfast, we'll begin exploring Vlorë, where Albanian independence from the Ottoman Empire was declared in 1912. We'll also get to admire spectacular panoramic views of the historic city!
We'll then set off on the three-hour journey to Butrint National Park. Along the way we'll drive through the picturesque coastal villages of Palase, Dhermi, Himara and Borsh, an area known as the Albanian Riviera. We'll make a short stop on the way for lunch.
Arriving in Butrint, you'll feel like you've travelled back in time as we explore the incredible archaeological complex and its well-preserved Greco-Roman, Byzantine and Venetian ruins. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is truly impressive! We'll then head to the hotel in Saranda.
Day 4: Saranda - Gjirokastër - Berat
After breakfast, we'll spend the day visiting two UNESCO World Heritage cities.

What's more, we'll enjoy a delicious lunch at the home of a local family.
We'll continue on a two and a half hour drive to our second city of the day: Berat. Nicknamed the "Town of a Thousand Windows", Berat is known for its historic architecture and scenic beauty. We'll see its medieval castle, the famous Onufri Museum and the 13th century Church of St Mary of Blaherna. We'll then head to the hotel for dinner and to rest after a full day of sightseeing.
