Trip Info

On this private tour, embark on an exciting day tour of Saranda and marvel at the UNESCO’s World Heritage ancient site of Buthrotum. Visit the gorgeous coastal town of Saranda, also known as the Pearl of the Balkans, and hidden destinations beyond. Join us as we try to transmit you the special atmosphere created by a combination of archaeology, monuments and nature. Take the chance to witness the breathtaking views of the endless horizon that Saint George Monastery and Lekuresi castle offer.

After convenient pickup from your hotel, board a comfortable vehicle and after a bit of city exploration, take advantage of the option to continue your journey straight to Buthrotum. On our way to the ancient site, our first stop will be at the 14th century Saint George Monastery. After that, we head to Ksamil where we get to enjoy an amazing panorama that sea, sun and islands offer. The perfect spot for sightseeing and profile photos. As we enter the National Park of Butrint, we examine the impressive remains of a Roman theater, travel along a historical route that shows you a temple, an ancient fitness center with public baths, an aqueduct and a Byzantine church with one of a kind well preserved baptistery. End this route with views of a hilltop castle from the Venetian period.

After spending at least a couple of hours in Buthrotum, we take our way back to the next destination, the Lekuresi Castle from where we admire the amazing and relaxing view of Saranda. Our last and most relaxing destination is a totally must be-there-and-see-it-yourself the famous springs of the Blue Eye! Blue Eye Spring is a hypnotic pool of deep-blue water surrounded by electric-blue edges like the iris of an eye. It’s a pleasant spot with blue dragonflies dashing around the water and the surrounding shady oak trees make a pleasant picnic spot. It’s the perfect spot for photos that can make it to your Facebook profile.

Your adventure awaits!
