The ancient city of Butrint in southern Albania has been revered as a rare and inspirational place for much of human history. It is the most significant archaeological site in Albania and its chief cultural attraction.

During the tour you will visit the surviving Epirot Theater, Roman Forum and early Byzantine Baptistery, along with other Hellenic, Roman, Byzantine, Angevin, Venetian and Ottoman monuments.  Butrint represents a luminous timeline of Mediterranean culture and thought — all at a human scale and in the loveliest landscape and seascape.

Key archaeological highlights you will see are: an ancient Epirot Theater; a Roman Forum; ruins of an early Byzantine Baptistery inlaid with an early sixth century mosaic floor; and the well-preserved ruins of a paleo-Christian Basilica that was rebuilt in the ninth century.

Butrint’s name (originally Buthrotum in Latin) was derived from the word buthrotos, which means “wounded bull”. This is based on a Greek mythological legend, in which the offering of a bull failed on the island of Corfu. The bull escaped and swam to the mainland, which was considered a sign of the gods and the Greek decided to build a settlement at this place. According to archaeologist the earliest evidence of settled occupation dates back between the 10th and 8th centuries BC.

 

It was strategically located because of its access to the Straits of Corfu and around the 6th century BC it was fortified. By then it already included a theater and a sanctuary.
