14 km south Saranda, this UNESCO site is an opportunity that you can’t pass up.

It’s the largest collection of ancient ruins in Albania at a location that has been occupied since the Stone Age. The ruins date back as far as 800BC when Butrint was settled by the Chaonians who occupied the coastal regions around western Greece and Albania. What remains are some excellent ruins, including an early-Christian basilica, a Roman theatre, a Roman temple and a Greek central square or agora with columns.
