Full-Day Berat Trip from Tirana

1. Full-Day Berat Trip from Tirana

Depart for Berat at 8:30 am and you will be transferred to this beautiful city for around 2.5 hours. This is one of the oldest cities and the pride of Albanian architecture. The three major neighborhoods of the old city are Mangalemi, Gorica, and Kala where the castle itself is located. You will start our tour with the castle area. Visiting the 'Kala' involves a steep walk up a cobbled path, but those who make it to the top will be rewarded with a fine view of the surrounding area. You will visit the Museum of Iconography 'Onufri' which bears the name of the renowned fresco and icon-painter Onufri, who has left a rich inheritance. This museum is located within the cathedral of St. Mary’s Assumption. You will also visit the Red Mosque, recognized by its lonely minaret and St. Trinity Church. After the fortress you will visit the Mangalemi quarter and the National Ethnographic Museum. This museum is located in one of the most characteristic and interesting houses of the town, a rich assemblage of traditional objects (more than 1000) and is one of the greatest examples of Berat’s long history and culture. Across the Osumi River lies the Gorica neighborhood, whose houses face those of Mangalemi. The arched bridge of Gorica, built in 1780, is a beautiful architectural monument constructed to link Gorica with Mangelemi. Enjoy some free time to stroll on the bridge. After the tour, there will be optional lunch in a restaurant with traditional cuisine (at extra cost) Return to Tirana.

What people are saying about Berat District

I took part in a day trip to Berat. A beautiful and interesting city. Also thanks to the guide who accompanied me, the tour was interesting and stimulating. The guide, Ilir, was kind and helpful, he gave me very precious historical and archaeological information, and also from a personal point of view it was a positive relationship. I certainly recommend the trip to Berat. Thank you

For anyone coming to Albania, Berat is a must visit. The place is amazing. From the castle, where you take a trip back in time, to the ethnographic museum where you can kill the urge to enter one of those houses that make up the thousand windows. I was lucky to have Blendi, the best guide ever.

It was a lovely day spent traveling to Berat. The countryside is great to see. Once we got there, the backrest kept getting better the higher up you go!

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative about Albanian history and modern day life.

Very knowledgeable, friendly, personable and helpful guide.
