Itinerary

Explore Berat UNESCO

After breakfast at the hotel, we depart for Berat a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Being more than 2400-year-old Berat it is one of the most attractive towns in Albania. Established in the 3rd century B.C by an Illyrian tribe of central Albania with a protective castle, it was known as the fortified city of Antipatrea. 

 

The Castle of Berat


Hike up to Berat Castle, which offers panoramic views of the city and surrounding landscapes.
This castle is the city of Berat's pride and joy.


National Iconographic Museum Onufri 


It’s housed in the Dormition of St. Mary Cathedral. The Byzantine church is highlighted by an iconostasis carved on walnut wood, gold-plated, and surrounded by other exquisite works of medieval art. The museum's collection, which totals 173 chosen works, also comprises the majority of Onufri’ s oeuvre. All of the icons in this museum were painted between the 16th and 20th century by Albanian iconographic painters.


Gorica Bridge (Pass By)


Built in the center of the city of Berat, the grandiose Bridge of Gorica is one of the most beautiful Ottoman bridges in the Balkan region, and connects the city with the neighborhood of the same name. This object owes much of its beauty to its very gradual arch, 10m tall, and elegantly extending 130m over across both sides of the Osumi riverbed. It is composed of a total of seven arches, wooden railings, and several small “windows,” which give the arches whimsical facial features, making this bridge a rare sight indeed. 


Mangalemi (Pass By)
 


Berat, one of Albania's most ancient and oldest cities, will occupy your entire day with breathtaking scenery as well as its rich history and tradition. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is divided into three big neighborhoods: Mangalemi and Gorica, separated by the Osum River, and the medieval castle, which is still inhabited. Remember that the city's famed windows will accompany you wherever you go! 

 

Quarter Of Gorica (Pass By) 


Gorica neighborhood. Similar to Mangalemi, the best way to see the latter is to freely stroll along its roads, discovering spectacular traditional houses at every step.

Kisha Shen Triadha (Holy Trinity Church) 


Holy Trinity Church is one of Berat's oldest churches. The church is located in Berat's old Mangalemi quarter, on the southern side of the Berat Castle. 

 

Trip to Apollonia for Golden Sunset


After lunch depart to the ancient city of Apollonia one of the most important ancient centers in Roman times on the famous Via Egnatia.
