Description

The trip starts early morning from Tirana where our Guide will pick you up to your stay. Throught the road we will stop for breakfast or a short coffee. When we will arrive in the city , the river m Gorica Bridge and the famous traditional Building of the city will kindly greet us. 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. Later, in the 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. We will continue our tour and visit the Gorica Neighbourhood, throught the famous bridge that holds the same name. Its time for Lunch, beautiful views of city, the castle and of course time to taste some traditonal food. Returning back to Tirana we will drive past Belsh lake, offering a picturesque view. We will have some free time to walk by the promenade surrounded by the emerald waters or even a stop at one of the coffee shops near the Lake. After this amazing experience through history, culture and amazing views we will drive back to Tirana.
