The highlights of Albania are the ideal way to explore this incredible country. Albania, on southeastern Europe’s Balkan Peninsula, is a small country with coastlines on the Adriatic and Ionian seas and an interior crossed by the Albanian Alps. Along its southern coast, the Albanian Riviera is known for its traditional Mediterranean villages, beach resorts and vibrant nightlife. With history stretching back to antiquity, Albania is also rich in castles and archaeological sites.
Enjoy exploring a highlight of this magnificent region with a visit to the national park of Butrint. It was declared a monument in protection by the Albanian State in 1948. The national importance of Butrint’s assets and cultural heritage was recognized and confirmed in the world by UNESCO World Heritage Committee in 1992, making it a World Heritage Site. See why this was determined based on cultural criteria as a unique and exceptional testimony of a cultural tradition and civilization that disappeared.
Butrint was an ancient city in Epirus, during the 7th century. We shall explore the Temple of Aeskulapius, the theater with 1500 seats, the Basilica, the Lion gate, the Gate Lake, the Venetian towers and the fortress of Ali Pasha, to name a few. A series of items can be found at the Museum of Butrint.
