- Tour a UNESCO World Heritage Site with an expert guide
- Perfect cultural tour for cruise passengers
This Albania gift experience is a great choice for cruise passengers looking for a unique excursion. Join a tour out to Butrint, a UNESCO World Heritage archaeological site, led by an expert guide. What makes it so special is that over the centuries Butrint has been a Greek colony, a Roman city and a bishopric. While it was abandoned in the Middle Ages, the ruins that have been excavated since the 1920s have been astounding. See the Roman Forum, a sprawling Roman townhouse known as the Triconch Palace, a villa and a major Roman suburb, among other fascinating landmarks.
Another aspect that makes this archaeological site so impressive is its beautiful Mediterranean setting. The landscape hereabouts is as picturesque as it is tranquil, and wandering around is captivating. You’ll be conveniently picked up from and returned to the port at Saranda in a comfortable vehicle, and have at your service a professional guide who will explain the various areas of the site from each period, and their significance. If you’d like a Saranda shore excursion with a difference, this one is for you.
