Private Tour from Saranda. Walk on Gjirokastra’s network of cobbled streets, visit the castle, and see traditional-style houses built 300 hundred years ago. Archaeologists believe that the site of the castle has been inhabited since the Iron Age with the first fortifications, block-built stone walls – probably being erected from the 5th century. From a feudal stronghold to the Ottoman invasion, to an Italian colony, the city has known many rulers and has inspired poets, authors, and artists alike. On your way back, you will stop to visit Blue Eye and the Lekursi Castle.
