Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Berat is one of the oldest inhabited regions of Albania, more than 2400 years old, and with special status from UNESCO. It is a beautiful museum town, and it is Albania's second museum town, sometimes called "the city of a thousand windows" due to its particular architectural style with houses with lots of windows almost on top of each other. Visit to the castle, Onufri Museum and several churches and mosques. Onufri was an Albanian master painter of the 16th. Many of his wonderfully painted icons still remain in the museum while others can be found in churches in Albania and Greece where he worked. In the downtown we visit the Leaden Mosque, the King's Mosque, the Bachelor's Mosque and the Alveti Tekke, and the old Bridge of Gorica. Lunch break. Continue to Apollonia. The tour continues with a visit to Apollonia, founded in 588 BC and taken by Aristotle as a model in his analysis of oligarchy, because of its distinct and separate Illyrian and Greek communities. It was a vital stronghold in Caesar's civil war with Pompey and also important in early Christian history with its bishop attending the councils of Ephesus and Chlalkis in 431 and 451 AD. You can visit its museum, Shen Meri Monastery and Church, inside the ancient city ruins.
