Know More about this tour

Departure for Berat at 9:00 am and you will be transferred towards this beautiful city for around 2,5 hours. This is one of the oldest 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. Free time to stroll in the bridge.   After the tour, optional lunch in a restaurant with traditional cuisine (at extra cost)   Return to Tirana and end of service.

  • Highly recommend this trip. Our tour guide, named Ilir, spoke excellent English and was very engaging and amiable. Expect a bit of a climb up to the castle, so no high-heels, ladies! After taking in the view and sights of the castle area, we took lunch on the way down at Restaurant Onufri, and were beyond pleased with the food. The owner was very nice and outgoing. This was followed by a trip to the town for a walk around to see the sights of the city. It was a day well spent, you'll be happy you booked it.

  • Our tour leader was fantasic! And so was the tour group of 4 people who were all interested in the same things. I think what was unique about this tour was the trour leaders genuine interest in us and his indepth knowledge of the history of the area, his willingness to engage on current political issues including the current election, his obvious pride in his country and ability to relate it in a personal way lacing it with personal anecdotes and humour. Berat is of course beautiful and I was reluctant to leave . One extra unanticipated experiene - the best meal we have had in Albania in the shadows of the castle walls - hosted by an exhuberant restrauter - of those geniuses of hospitality able to share a dance, raki and a story with the food prepared by his family. The stuffed peppers would be the best I have every had!

  • A great break from Tirana and a very interesting tour with an informative guide. The guide asked for preferences at the start of the tour, but didn't seem to actually tailor the trip that much. Good shoes with lots of traction are a must - the streets are very slippery and you walk all day while in Berat.

  • Great tour and really good guide in Ed and driver Abdul. They showed us some great sites and were really flexible on stopping to get photos and also were very informative on the things we saw on the tour. Definitely recommend this tour and great value for whole day tour.
