Full description
Travel to Berat in the morning at 08:30. Once you get to the city, you will learn that it was invaded three times by Ottomans, Romans and Bulgarians and then became a big principality under the rule of the Albanian noble family of Muzaka in the 14th century. Your will walk on well preserved cobblestone streets. Explore the Onufri Museum inside of the Cathedral of the Saint Mary Assumption (18th century) and admire the icons of the mysterious work of the Onufri painter. Visit the castle, one the most marvelous sights of the city and one of the biggest inhabited castles with many Byzantine churches, as well as some mosques built under the Ottoman era which began in 1417. You will also visit the King Mosque and Helveti Teke. Your next stop will be the old quarters of Mangalem and Gorica connected with each other by the Gorica Bridge over the Osumi River.

The visit to the castle was good and lasted approx. 2½ hours. However it takes 2-2½ hours to get there and the same back. Add another thing to see to make the trup worthwhile. I also find this trip too expensive.
