Itinerary

The tour starts in Tiranë, the capital of Albania, and its largest city. It is in the center of Albania, enclosed by mountains and hills. Tirana International Airport is served by local and international airlines.

After meeting the guide, you will travel approximately two hours south to Berat. This ancient, hillside city is located along the Osum River and in between the Tomorr Mountains and Mount Shpirag, which tower over and protect the town.

Berat’s history dates back to the 6th century B.C., when it was an Illyrian settlement. In the 3rd century B.C., a castle was built and Berat became a fortified city. This castle has been conquered and rebuilt through the centuries. At various times it included churches with valuable frescoes and icons and a calligraphy school; today residents live inside its walls.

Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008, today Berat is known as the City of a Thousand and One Windows due to the multitude of large windows in the houses overlooking the town. The traditional houses have two floors; the second is more prominent with many cambered windows and wood carvings. Looking up at these houses makes it clear how the city became known for its many windows–they appear to be floating in the sky.

In the Old Quarter, you will step back in time to the Middle Ages as you walk the cobbled streets and gaze at the well-preserved houses with their original Ottoman architecture. The fortress on the hilltop offers an amazing panoramic view of everything surrounding Berat. As you explore it, you will understand why it was such an important stronghold. In addition, there are Byzantine churches, icon displays, museums, and art galleries.

After free time for lunch (be sure to try some local specialties), you will travel to the nearby Cobo Winery to taste some of Albania’s best wines. This historic family winery was started in the early 1900s. Although the Communist regime forced the family to stop producing wine, current family members have revived the business through the memories and stories of older family members. It features 100% Albanian products and currently bottles five premium wines and two rakis.

After wine tasting, you will travel back to Tirana through the Belshi lakes region, renowned for its 84 natural lakes. You will enjoy the beautiful scenery of rural Albania.
