Just south of Saranda lies one of the Mediterranean's most important archaeological sites, the ancient city of Butrint (open 08:00 - dusk; admission 700 lek), a National Park and World Heritage site.
Thousands of years of settlement by Neolithic tribes, Illyrians, Greeks, Trojans, Macedonians, Romans, Byzantines, Normans, Angevins, Ottomans and Venetians have left their traces here. The city was abandoned relatively recently, in the Ottoman period, and subsequently was covered by vegetation and forgotten.
Other than the famous sites in Greece and Turkey, Butrint is mostly untouched, with bits of masonry poking from the ground here and there, and woods providing a romantic atmosphere. Excavation is in progress, and you'll see sheets protecting mosaics and other artworks.
Still, there's plenty to see: the well preserved theatre; the Temple of Asklepios; the remains of a large Roman house; an early Christian baptistry and a church; the Greek-era Well of Nymphs, and some massive Illyrian city walls. Climb up the acropolis for a great view of the site and the bay. You now get a good brochure at the entrance, and there are also excellent new information signs throughout the site.
The beautiful lagoons, marshlands, forests and olive groves of the National Park can be explored on foot, by boat or on horseback with CISP, an Italian eco-tourism agency (tel. +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), (URL HIDDEN)
