Full description
Visit one of the unspoiled corners of the Mediterranean as you walk through Butrinti ancient monuments. Soak up the atmosphere and the unique ecosystem of Butrinti as you visit some of its finest monuments.

After a short transfer, arrive at Butrinti Archeological Park across Ksamil town. As you drive to the archeological site, enjoy the panorama over Vivari Channel and learn about the Ali Pasha military outpost. In the archeological site, explore the well preserved monuments, beginning with the Venetian tower and continuing through green vegetation to the temple of Asclepius and Agora. Walk to the Baptistry, Episcopal Palace, Church, the castle and Museum.

The settlement goes as far back as the Bronze age, and is 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 center of the city was the temple dedicated to Asclepius, God of Medicine around the 3rd century B.C. During the Roman Period, the settlement became a Roman colony, changing significantly. Discover this rich history before taking a coffee break in the Archeological park, and returning to the city of Saranda where your tour ends.
