Day 1: TIRANE – DURRES

From Tirana we head to Durrës, located in central western Albania. We stop for a coffee to enjoy the beautiful view of the Adriatic Sea, then visit the Durres Amphitheater. Located in the center of the city, it was built in the second century and is one of the largest amphitheaters in the Balkans. From Durrës we travel to Berat, the antique city. On our way to Berat there are wonderful views of the agricultural region of Lushnja. Once in Berat, we visit the castle of Berat, which is an ancient fortress overlooking the city. We dine and stay the night in Berat’s historic Old Town.

Day 2: BERAT – CANYONS – PERMET

After taking in all the beauty that Berat has to offer we head to the Osumi River and canyon. One of the most spectacular natural attractions in Albania with heights up to 26 km, the canyon contains many underground passages and unexplored caves and provides breathtaking views. Next, we head off-road to Permet via the mountain road where the adrenaline rush is guaranteed. Located 14 km from Permet, the Benje thermal baths with their sulphur-rich waters offer many curative effects. With temperatures from 26º to 32º Celcius, the healing waters are known as cures for chronic diseases such as rheumatism, stomach conditions and skin diseases. We return to Permet to dine and stay the night.

Day 3: GJIROKASTER – TIRANE

On our final day we visit Gjirokaster, an ancient city which lies in the historical region of Epirus. Nestled in a valley of the Gjere Mountains, Gjirokaster sits beside the Drino River at 300m (984 ft) above sea level and is famous for its beautiful stone houses and steep stone streets. We take some time to wander the ruins of the castle of Gjirokaster which overlooks the city. The castle contains a military museum featuring German and Italian artillery from the Communist resistance as well as a captured US Air Force plane which commemorates the Communist regime’s struggle against the “imperialist” western powers. As we head back to Tirana, we pass through Tepelene, which is known for its many spectacular natural monuments. A few stops to see some of the sights here and then back to Tirana.
