Day Tour of Berat from Tirana

Duration

clock8 to 10 hours

Overview

    Berat is known as the town of 1001 windows, part of UNESCO world heritage.
    Walking through the narrowed stone streets offers a fantastic view of the medieval old houses, with windows that seem to stand on top of each other. The city’s life began in the 6th-5th century B.C. as an Illyrian settlement. In 3rd century B.C., it was turned into a castle city known as Antipatrea. Uniquely today, residents still live inside of the castle walls. Berat has it all; a beautiful medieval castle, ancient churches and mosques, a lively lower town consisting of grand old houses draped on steep hillsides, an old stone bridge, great museums and remains from the communist era in Albania. Berat is also known as the birthplace of Onufri, the famous painter of churches all-over the Balkans, distinguished for creating a specific reddish colour still difficult to imitate. At 12:30, you will have some free time to have lunch and wander around by yourself till 14:00 pm. Back in Tirana in the late afternoon.
