“Its almost impossible not to like Butrint! Even if you are not very interested in archaelogy, you will enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, the scent of the eucalyptus trees, and the crickets chirping in amongst the ruins!” This was the first sentence in my travel guide and it 100 % true. Butrint was a real high light during my Albania trip.

“The area is covered with remains from many different periods covering more than 2500 years. Butrint is a microcosm of Mediterranean history, representing in all its phases of development, the rise and the fall of the great empires that dominated the regions. What you see today is an amalgam of monuments representing a span of over two thousand years from the Hellenistic temple buildings of the 4th century BC to the Ottoman defences created in the early 19th century.“ - (Butrint Flyer)
