Description

Day 1 Tirana -Gjirokaster World Heritage- Blue Eye- Himara We drive to Gjirokastra , the journey should take us 3 hours of driving on a very scenic road to the south. Once we arrive in Gjirokastra we start walking on the Old Town, visiting first the the Old Bazaar of Gjirokastra a heritage from the 17th century full of souvenir shops bars and restaurants run by the locals for generations. Majestically, we tread through the bustling Bazaar to reach the grand Gjirokastra Fortress. Upon the hilltop's natural defences, it was the first settlement of the city. We continue to drive further more in the south of Albania to visit the Blue Eye. One must traverse the verdant parkland to behold the grandeur of the 'Blue Eye' spring - an awe-inspiring natural phenomenon and popular tourist attraction. Our tour continues all along the Albanian Riviera until Himara one of the main small cities on the Ionain Sea, where we will spend the night. Day 2 Himare- Llogara National Park-Zvernec-Tirane On our way back to Tirana we will have the opportunity to drive by Llogara National park and have a stop at Llogara Pass to enjoy the incredible view of the Albanian Riviera and the Ionian Sea . We leave Himara behind and travel back to Tirana. On the way we stop to Zverneci Island . Situated in close proximity to a diminutive isle lies an island with a preponderance of majestic pine trees. This idyllic island, located to the east of its smaller counterpart, is linked to the mainland by a lengthy wooden bridge, spanning a distance of approximately 270 meters. Nestled within its verdant landscape is the well-maintained Zvërnec Monastery, a Byzantine structure dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries, that has withstood the ravages of time. After the visit we head back to Tirana.
