Vlora and Orikum Full Day Trip from Durres

 Vlora port city, bordered by the Adriatic Sea, is a modern city (it was destroyed by a terrible earthquake in 1851). It is the city where the Albanian independence from the Ottomans was proclaimed on November 28th, 1912. It is ranked as the third largest Albania city with about 190,000 inhabitants and is only 120 km away from Italy.

It was founded in the 6th century BC under the name of Aulona. Roman rule remained Patriarchate of Rome until the 8th century AD and then moved to the Patriarchate of Constantinople. It used to be a colony of the Serbs, Ottomans and Venetians. It was occupied by the Italians from 1914 to 1920 and during the Second World War from 1939 to the famous and tragic September 8, 1943 (armistice). During this war the island of Sazan, located in the Bay of Vlora, became a submarine and naval base for Italians and Germans. Vlora is also the city with the largest number of foreign tourists after Tirana.

Your 8-hour tour starts in the morning at the agreed meeting point. Transfer to Vlora (about 2 hours). Before you enter the city there will be a stop to visit the Bizantin Monastery of Zvernec situated in island within the Narta Lagoon.

The island is nearly all covered with tall pine trees and is just east of a much smaller island.  Zvërnec Island is connected to the mainland by a 270m long wooden bridge.

The island is a tourist attraction because it contains the well preserved 13th-14th century Byzantine Zvërnec Monastery.Near the island lies the village that bears the same name.
