Description

Our Cruise to Albania from Corfu is aimed at adventurous travellers seeking something out of the ordinary. This what exactly Butrint offers with its fantastic ancient remains and incredible viewpoints.

Itinerary
  • Set off from the port of Corfuexpand_more

    From the port of Corfu, we follow the Albanian coast to the city port of Saranda.

    After a short coffee break in Saranda, a 20 km guided coach tour of the south coast’s virgin shores and scattered islands are available for those who want it.

  • See the highlights of Butrint expand_more

    Leaving the mainland again, we pass small picturesque villages and endless fertile plains that lead to a great lake. 

    The highlight of your cruise to Albania will be a visit to Butrint – a UNESCO World Heritage site. Over the centuries, the ancient town had disappeared under layers of silt and vegetation.

    However, in recent years, archaeologists have uncovered some of the finest working towns remains in the Mediterranean. At the edge of the lake is the ancient city of Vouthrota. The Venetian Tower near the entrance, the ancient theatre, the Temple of Asclepius, the ancient gymnasium, the Roman Baths, the Roman Baptistery with its priceless mosaic floor, the Lion Gate and the enormous Cyclopean walls will transport you back in time from 2,500 years till the 3rd century A.D.

    At the top of the hill stands the Venetian Castle, offering breath-taking, panoramic views of the ancient city, the lake and the vast plains below.
