Day-trip of Berat

Berat is one of those places that you travel to a country for! Some may call it cliche, but its homes and windows deserve the reputation they have – it is a must-stop visit on anyone’s tour to Albania.  This place really has to be seen to be believed – the views from the castle and walking along the quaint stone roads going every which-way is truly unique.  Bring your camera and an appetite!
Itinerary:
  • 9:00 – Your guide will pick you up and you’ll drive to Berat (approximately 2 hour drive)
  • 11:00– Visit the Castle of Berat (over 2400 years old), some of the chapels, the houses with their beautiful architecture and the Onufri Museum that houses beautiful paintings
  • 13:15 – lunch in one of the small family restaurants within the fortress – we will recommend a delicious traditional meal for you!
  • 14:15 – Drive down to the lower neighborhoods of Berat for a walking tour. This will bring you to the Medieval Center (King’s Mosque, Halveti Teqe and Caravan Saraj), Mangalemi neighborhood and its small beautiful streets (make sure you are good at going uphill for a bit), the bridge of Gorica and the neighborhood of Gorica itself.
  • 16:30 – drive back to Tirana

How the Group Pricing Works
Since we cannot know how many people might show up on any given day, we will initially quote you the tour price depending on the number of people in your individual booking (i.e. if there are 2 people in your booking, you will expect to pay the price per person for 2 listed above.) However, should we have more people sign up, the final price will be reduced on the day of departure – you could end up saving money and meeting new people!  For a clear group calendar, click here.
