Cruise to Albania from Corfu

8 reviews
Our Cruise to Albania from Corfu is aimed at adventurous travellers seeking something out of the ordinary.<br><br>From the Port of Corfu, we follow the Albanian coast to the city port of Saranda. After a short coffee break in Saranda, a 20 km guided coach tour of the south coast’s virgin shores and scattered islands is available for those who want it. Leaving the mainland again, we pass small picturesque villages and endless fertile plains that lead to a great lake. <br><br>The highlight of your day will be a visit to Butrint – an UNESCO World Heritage site. Over the centuries, the ancient town had disappeared under layers of silt and vegetation.<br><br>In recent years, however, archaeologists have uncovered some of the finest working town remains in the Mediterranean. At the edge of the lake is the ancient city of Vouthrota. <br><br>Lunch is served upon your return to Saranda.<br><br>In the afternoon, there will be a walking tour of Saranda, after which we depart for Corfu.

Saw this site in a travel blog and it made me want to go and visit it. When we went, it didn’t disappoint. We enjoyed walking the wooden bridge to get to the monastery. The drive from downtown Vlorë to Zvërnec was pretty nice. Lots of beach bars and restaurants along the way.

Vlore (Valona) is primary a big holiday resort and hasn't got much other to offer its visitors. However, this monastery is a terrific place to visit and absolute best thing to do there. It's set in the city's northern outskirts, by the sea in a lagoon on a tiny island. Have in mind you need a car to reach it and the road leading to it is pretty narrow. There's no parking place there, but you can leave your car by the side of the road as everybody else. A winding wooden bridge leads to the island where's the monastery. The 13th c stone monastery is dedicated to Virgin Mary, very nice both inside and outside. TIP: when in the area there are nice beaches on the road leading to the monastery, you'll see a lot of local's cars there.

The monastery is nice, the boardwalk better, but anyway the beaches and bars along the way to get there are even better!
