Known as 'The City of a Thousand Windows', beautiful Berat invites you to peek into the past at its monuments, mosques and museums. Wander beneath minarets, mosaics and murals in the UNESCO-listed old town then complete your day with a tour and tasting session at a local vineyard.
Journey into central Albania and you'll arrive in medieval Berat – a melting pot of cultures and religions. Follow your guide on a tour of the mosque minarets and imposing cathedrals that dot the skyline and see the gleaming-white Ottoman-era houses climbing the mountainside towards the castle – they're the legend behind the nickname. You'll also visit the Historical House for the chance to pick up traditional treats like gliko, a special Albanian jam.
After all that exploring, you'll have built up quite a thirst – so we round off at a local winery for a sampling of typical Berati wines, all accompanied by their perfect snack pairing.
