Itinerary

-Vlora and Kanina Castle Day Tour, from Tirana

Our day will start early at 8:30 am at the pickup location. At about 10:00 we will arrive at Zvërnec, Narta lagoon. The island where the Monastery is located is connected to the land through a very picturesque and unique wooden bridge 270 m long, where we will walk across the Zvërneci lagoon with the morning sun. The monastery was built during the 13 century and is dedicated to Mary. During the communism time was used for military purposes, hence its beautiful frescos are deteriorated and in need of immediate restoration.
After wondering about 1 hour visiting the monastery and the island we will head towards Vlora, where we will visit the Kanina fortress with a magnificent view of Vlora bay, Sazani Island and Karaburun Peninsula. Kanina has been an old town more important than Vlora in Medieval times, later it lost its importance and nowadays it’s a beautiful village.
After that we will visit the old heart of Vlora town and explain its history. Vlora is the city of our independence and it has an important role on our past and present. The port of Vlora is one of the most important on Adriatic Sea being very deep and it a strategic location. While the rocky cost of Ioanian sea starting from Vlora to Saranda is the most beautiful in Albanian and most visited during summer time. You will be in love of Vlora wanting to return again!
