Overview of your Sarande tour:

The city in the south of Albania was elected UNESCO world cultural heritage. The castle which is believed is the largest in the Balkans is one of Albania's most magnificent monuments. Archaeologists believe that the site of the castle has been inhabited since the Iron Age with the first fortifications, block-built stone walls - probably being erected from the 5th century. Dominated by the sheer flanks of its vast castle, Gjirokastra (Gjirokastër) is a magical city with a tumultuous past. From feudal stronghold, to Ottoman invasion, to Italian colony, the city has known many rulers and has inspired poets, authors and artists alike. Also known by many as the "City of Stone, " Gjirokastra (Gjirokastra) is a developing center for cultural heritage tourism. A walk through its network of cobbled streets that climb steeply out of the bazaar will transport you back in time.

After a convenient pick up from your hotel or Saranda port where your cruise ship has docked we start our tour. First stop will be at the Blue Eye, please be aware to save some memory on your cameras cause this beautiful blue eyed spring is not the only one wonder of nature you shall see today.

Coming back to Saranda our final stop will be at the sixteenth century castle of Lekuresi and the magical view of the town and the horizon that it offers.
