Butrint National Park Tour
At 9:30 am on the day of your excursion, we'll pick you up from your selected meeting point in Saranda, or Sarandë. Climbing aboard a minibus, we'll drive around the city streets before setting off for the ancient city of Butrint.
After a 30 minute drive, we'll catch a glimpse of the beautiful Lake Butrint and the Islands of Ksamil, located on the Ionian Sea. We'll then reach Butrint National Park, home to an archaeological site containing incredible Greco-Roman, Byzantine and Venetian ruins.
We'll begin by visiting the archaeological ruins dating back to Classical Antiquity, exploring the theatre dating back to the Hellenistic period. Despite being around 2400 years old, the stands and part of the stage can still be seen today! We'll also admire the Temple of Asclepius, another vestige from the ancient Greek city of Buthroton.
Centuries later, the Romans conquered the city and renamed it Buthroutum. We'll delve into this era of history discovering the 6th century Baptistery and its spectacular mosaic pavement.
For the finishing touch on our fascinating guided tour of Butrint archaeological site, we'll take in the impressive views from a castle dating from the Venetian period. We'll then make the return journey to Saranda, where you'll be dropped off around 1 pm.
