Tour Features

Visit Ardenica and Apollonia Daily excursion starting from Berat.

In this daily excursion, you are going to visit Ardenica and Apollonia starting from the city of Berat.

Firstly, after the transfer from Berat to Ardenica, you are going to visit the Monastery of Ardenica. This monastery is a precious relict monument of Albanian culture. It was inherited from a period when Catholicism as a religion and culture was dominant in the country. It is thought that this medieval monastery was established in 1282 by the Byzantine Emperor Andronik II Paleolog after winning the war against Berat city. The old building is surrounded by other old constructions which are thought to have been part of a small city center. It is of huge importance for the history of Albania since it was chosen by the national hero Scanderbeg to hold his matrimonial ceremony on April 21st, 1451.
