This is one of those places that you travel to a country for. Berat and its windows stand as one of the cliches to the country and they deserve the reputation they have got.
The tour is supposed to leave from either Tirana or Durres and will leave at 09am from your hotel or wherever is most comfortable for you.
The tentative program of the day should be:
09am – drive to Berat (from Tirana 1h45′; from Durres 1h15′)
11am – visit the Castle of Berat (2400 years old and eventually more), some of the chapels, the houses of such a beautiful architecture and the Onufri Museum
13h15 – lunch in one of the small family restaurants of the fortress with a traditional meal that we can set for you
14h15 – drive down to the lower neighborhoods of Berat for a walking tour bringing 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), bridge of Gorica and the neighborhood of Gorica itself.
16h30 – drive back to Tirana or Durres. Drop off at the hotel.
We will include in the price all services with a comfortable AC car, fuel, professional guide/driver, entrance fees in the suggested sites, VAT tax.
We will operate this as a private tour or as a group tour. Of course the prices will tend to change from private (starting from 89.0 euros/person) to group (of minimum 5 participants starting from 49.0 euros/person). The more numerous, the lower the price logically.
We are also very flexible at integrating other options to the tour and adopting it to your timing, interest, physical ability.
