Leave the port of Corfu on a hydrofoil headed for Albania and the port of Saranda.
Switch to a motor coach and travel to the ancient town of Butrint. Ancient Butrint was an important Greco-Roman port city and is now an impressive UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was inhabited continuously from the 7th century BC until it was abandoned in the 18th century AD. Its walls are reminiscent of ancient Mycenae in Greece, but its most noteworthy excavated remains are early Hellenistic and Roman.
Of special interest is the circular baptistery dating from the 6th century AD, paved with mosaics.
Enjoy lunch in Saranda; then, head back to the port to embark the hydrofoil for the return trip to Corfu.
Guests are required to carry their passports as this tour crosses an international border.
Travel time to Butrint is approximately 90 minutes each way. Hydrofoil schedule varies, which may affect departure and return time of the tour.
