As we set out on our adventure through Gjirokaster, get ready for an experience that will ignite your senses and stir your soul. Our first stop is the magnificent Gjirokaster Castle, standing proud atop a hill with sweeping views of the city below. As we wander through its ancient halls and climb its weathered steps, imagine the stories that echo within its walls – tales of knights, kings, and the resilience of the people who called this place home. Next, we'll stroll through the charming streets of the old town until we reach the Skenduli house, a hidden gem bursting with history and charm. Step inside and feel the weight of centuries as we admire the intricate woodwork and colorful frescoes that adorn its walls. But hold onto your hats because our journey takes an unexpected turn as we venture underground into the Cold War Tunnel. Feel the chill in the air as we navigate its narrow passageways and secret chambers, uncovering the secrets of Albania's past with each step. After all that exploring, it's time to treat ourselves to a taste of tradition with a sampling of local desserts. From the sweet indulgence of baklava to the delicate flavors of oshaf each bite is a reminder of the rich culinary heritage that makes Gjirokaster so special. So come along and join us on this journey of discovery and delight, where every moment is an opportunity to connect with the past and create memories that will last a lifetime.
