Meet your English-speaking local guide, car and driver at your hotel or from your cruise ship in Durres for a full-day private day trip to Berat, ‘the town of a thousand windows’. Nowadays a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Berat was spared architectural ‘modernisation’ during the communist era and retains its ancient charms. Picturesque white houses sprawl up the hillside higgeldy-piggeldy towards its remarkable citadel which houses no fewer than 8 medieval churches, including one with a fine collection of icons, the portraits of the saints in the Serbian Orthodox church. There is also an Ethnographic Museum in an 18th century house with displays of furniture, clothing, kitchen equipment and traditional crafts. After lunch call at the Cabo vineyard where Albania’s centuries-old wine and raki making traditions have been revived with indigenous grape varieties, to enjoy a taste of their produce and learn more about it. Return to your hotel or cruise ship in Durres.
