Details: This is a one day excursion to the spectacular country of eagles Albania, a country full of monuments, newly recognized by UNESCO as a world heritage site. On this trip you will visit the city of Sarandë known as the “Pearl of the Balkans”. This port city was built on the ruins of the ancient city of Onchismou that flourished during the Roman times but it was destroyed in 552 AD only to be founded again as a modern city during the Ottoman era. Once you have arrived at Ag. Sarandë you have the choice of either spending your day exploring and enjoying this area or purchasing an extra excursion if you want to learn more about the history of this country. The extra excursion will cost an additional 23 Euros which can be paid directly at the tour guide. The 23 Euros will cover entrance fees for two archaeological sites, your tourist guide and lunch. We highly recommend you opt in for the extra excursion as you will get he chance to visit Butrint and Blue Eye. Butrint is a true archaeological treasure, as it travels you back in time, many centuries ago, to the Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Venetian times. The city of Butrint is situated on a green peninsula, surrounded by rivers that link the Ionian Sea with the beautiful lagoon. Blue Eye is a landscape that will enchant you and calm down your soul. In the past, it was a relaxation landscape for the communist elite. Sitting under the shades of the green trees, the guide will tell you all about the myth of this amazing natural phenomenon.
