I'm a sucker for antiquity. I love finding out about ancient estabilishments, how people lived, what they did, trade routes, relations to great empires and historical figures. Berat and Butrint were between the most amazing spots. First of all, the history of the Berati Castle is fascinating in itself. Did you know it came to be as a resting spot for merchants en route through these lands? I even got to visit the Onufri museum-church. I was blown away by the museums cicero, she was so damn prepared. Her English was impeccable and the way she explained everything with passion made it all come alive for me.

Butrint was a whole other experience. The guide was also really prepared and the way she illustrated different constructs often on the ruins of the same building helped me understand the intrinsic history of the place and it's connections to great the great Roman and Greek cultures. Don't miss out people, Albania is a hidden jewel.
