  • From the island of Corfu by ferry you can easily get into Albania, going to Corfu or already in place in Albania. Better on Corfu. Were surprised that in Albania there is a beautiful park, and there's a curious ruins and beautiful mosaics. We, unfortunately, have not been lucky with mosaics, before heavy rain its refuge, not to missing, but the rest we examined with great pleasure. The guide told me very exciting. If you're not a fan of the ruins, you will still be there wondering wander and just sit on the shore, there are very beautiful.

  • We were with the MSC at anchor. Since the city itself is determined not so great we with acquaintances to take a taxi tour us to have approx. 3 h after Butrint we €80 paid. The site itself could you looking at is quite nice but not so historically like maybe Olympia. The entrance cost €5 per person it was OK. On the return trip, we made a stop at the castle of Butrint. Here you had a great view on the ship. All in all a gelungerner trip in Butrint.

  • Very interesting really nice place I would highly recommend visiting this place it worth coming here and I'll be there and explore the nature of Albania really enjoyed it I will come back to Albania.
  • Great place for visit with family, a lot of things for seeing. You can see few culture in one place. Ticket for adult it's about 700ALL so it's about 5€. Isn't too expensive.
  • Fantastic historical place in beautiful nature. Greek, Romantic and Venetian ruins make up a complete fortified city at a green-eyed Bay. Good tour! Part of the Albanian adventure tours from Corfu, this shows an amazing part of this unknown country.
  • A must see attraction! Breathtaking views of this beautiful ancient city. Don't miss the castle where you will enjoy the best views.
  • It's one of the beatiful places in the world !👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
