What to expect

Experience all the flavours of Albania with a visit to her oldest city and a sampling of locally made brandy and wines. Explore the history-rich highlights of ancient Durrës, then round of with a tour and tasting session at a traditional distillery.

It all kicks off in the walled city of Durrës. Once an important outpost of the Roman Empire, it's now a vibrant and modern port area – but that doesn't mean it hasn't retained its historic charms. Your expert guide will give you the lowdown on all the monuments here such as the 5th century fortress and the city's star attraction, the ancient Greco-Roman amphitheatre.

You'll then hit the archaeological museum to marvel at its impressive collection of finely carved statuettes, busts and stone sarcophagi. After free time to explore the upscale marina area, we'll head to a local distillery for a snifter of traditional Albanian brandy.

    4x4 Safari with Wine Tasting

    This action-packed 4x4 experience has adventure stamped all over it. It all kicks off speeding towards Cape Rodon to admire wow-factor panoramas over the Adriatic and the Ottoman-era Castle Skanderberg. You'll stop by the ancient St. Anthony church to see one of Albania's most treasured religious monuments before exploring one of the thousands of abandoned Cold War military bunkers along the coast.

Afterwards, it's back in the vehicles and on to a local vineyard for a well-earned glass of Balkan wine.
