About this activity
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.

My friend Stacy and I booked this excursion in early April before we started our organized journey through the Balkan region. Ilr was fantastic! Despite a rather rainy day, he made our first day in Albania really wonderful. He is a well versed guide, easy going, flexible, funny, and adapted well to two talkative American women who were excited to be on holiday. We had a fabulous lunch as well and I tried the famous Albanian raki. Ilr also gave us a few suggestions for our next day in Tirana which were much appreciated. I highly recommend this trip!

The Berat tour was exceptional. My guide Ilir was simply the best and made it a truly amazing day. He is incredibly knowledgeable about Albania and seemed to know everyone we encountered. He personalized the tour based on my interests. Highly recommend!

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.
