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 on the quaint stone roads going every which-way us truly unique. Bring your camera and an appetite!
