A Roman theater is still active from time to time. Dynamic environments, including a freshwater lake and dense woodland, surprise you with an abundance of wildlife. There are a variety of ways for you to tour the attraction, including hiking trails. Consider a stay in the seaside village of Ksamil for access to the coast and national park.

  • Whenever I come to visit the South of the Albania, I take the same French guide Elsa Pichon. She was waiting at the port to our arrival in Corfu, we see a bit of Saranda time to wait the bus then we had a great time on the site of Butrint. Admission is € 5, the guide's explanation to visualize the different stories of the site and the walk in the Park is unforgettable. Then we took the bus. Our guide has us bring in a little touristy but tasty Saranda restaurant! A very nice experience for €100 for 4 people is quite reasonable! Thanks again!

  • For me, a fantastic place, I was here for the second time and i can only recommend. Of course these are not the Pompeii or Ephesus but impressive. We do not recommend the restaurant next to the road as Albania and of farty – which.

  • Great explanations if you have the chance of falling on the Kela guides or Elsa. Do not hesitate to ask them to make your visit an unforgettable to Butrint.
