“Butrint”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

The site is a mixture of ruins from over a longish period, pre-Roman, Roman, early Christian with later Venation and Ottoman fortifications. Nicely wooded for hot weather with lovely views over the nearby lake. A largely level path takes you on a circular tour through the ruins to an interesting small museum from which it is a short walk back to the entrance. Well worth a visit.

Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

This is a must when you are in Sarande area. Easy to come there with car or bus. Much interesting to see there, and it was good explenation, so you don't need a guide.

“Bemused”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

My journey in the Balkans is going well... With these views that give Butrint everything its fantastic. Old walls tha you do not understand how they have built, you be surprised... A whole city surrounded by water... A well-thought structure from older residents... Should definitely visit.
