Description

Go on a 5-Hour to the archaeological sites of Butrint & Sardana which were inhabited since prehistoric times. Explore Butrint, which was once a Greek colony, a Roman city, and a bishopric. Learn about how it gained prosperity under Byzantine administration, and how the city was abandoned in the late Middle Ages after marshes formed in the area.
