Day 1
Durres - Kruja | Kruja

Arrival into Durres. Meet your guide for a transfer to the historic town of Kruja, about one hour of Durres. The town of Kruja sits 560 meters above sea level, on the slopes of Sari - Salltiku Mountain and offers a gorgeous view of the surrounding landscape. It is known for its dominant castle, built in the 5th and 6th century in an interesting elliptic shape.

Once you arrive, enjoy a stroll through the old bazaar of Kruja whose tradition goes back to the medieval times. After you walk through the bazaar the road will lead you to the entrance of the Castle, and the main Fort of Scanderbeg – the stronghold of the struggle of the Albanians against the Ottomans. The Castle now houses the Ethnographic Museum and the Scanderbeg Museum dedicated to the Albanian National Hero.

After the visit of the Castle, head back to the Old Town to enjoy some refreshment, wine tasting and try some home-made Rakia.

Exeter Services: Return to Durres in the late afternoon. Car, Driver-Guide (5.5 Hours)
