Vlora, the independency city is picturesquely located on the Bay of Vlore. Vlora has a long history, not unlike other ancient towns along the coast. It was first founded by Greek colonists in the 6th century BC. Later, it was an important port of the Roman and the Byzantine Empires. Changing hands several times over the centuries, Vlora finally fell to the Ottomans in 1417. It was in Vlora that five centuries later – in 1912, during the First Balkan War, Albania declared its independence from the Ottomans. However, the Italians invaded it a couple of years later.
History speaks for itself in Vlore while visiting the city. In the center is the Flag Square, where the people gathered to celebrate the raise of the flag. Vlora enjoys a beautiful position because it is the gateway to the Albanian Riviera, which is the gem of Albanian Tourist places. The town with its wide boulevards decorated by huge palm trees has a real southern Mediterranean feel to it. It is located in front of the Karaburuni peninsula and Sazani Island, close to various sandy and rocky beaches and the scenic nearby mountains. The bunkers of Sazani Island and the first Marine Park in Albania are some of the most visited and preferred sites by the tourists.
After meeting with your guide at 8:00 AM, you will start to visit Vlora and then, at 09:30, we start the boat tour with the lunch included. The main part of the boat tour is the visit of Sazani Island, a mysterious island, part of the old communist Albania’s mystery. Sazani Island is still a military base with around 3600 bunkers and many tunnels. Since it is a military base it has always been isolated and that is the reason why it has a rich flora and fauna. You will also visit Karaburun and enjoy all the beautiful views that it has to offer to you. After visiting all these places you will get transferred to Vlora port to continue your journey.
