Tours Culture & history Entry tickets Day trips Reseller exclusions Nature & adventure

Discover the "City of Stone", Gjirokaster, on a half-day tour from Sarandë. See the sights of the UNESCO World Heritage Listed town, including Gjirokastra Castle, the Arms Museum, and Zekate House.


  • Guided visit in Gjirokastra
  • Visit Zekat's house (the oldest in the city)
  • Visit the house museum of Ismail Kadare
  • Tickets to Gjirokastra Castle


Your tour will start from Saranda and only in an hour and a half, you will reach Gjirokastra. One of the main characteristics of this place is the intensive use of stone in the building of the houses and streets, which is why it earned the nickname “The City Of Stone”. You will also need to walk a lot to get around the city, so that is the reason Gjirokastra is also called as 'the city of a thousand steps'. You will be exploring the main attractions of the city such as the Castle of Gjirokastra, known as the origin of the city, built in the 12th century, following the Museum of Arms, and the historic center. Your tour will continue with the visit to the house of the Zeka’s family (the most magnificent and characteristic building of Gjirokastra), the museum house of Ismail Kadare, one of the most important writers in the country, and to the final visit and the Ethnographic Museum. During the walking tour of the city, you will notice that all the roads lead to the old Bazaar.
