Today our Lindblad staff and guests got to explore the legendary UNESCO World Heritage Site of Butrint. We went on a journey into the past as our Greek guides led us through the ancient ruins of a theater, baths, baptistry, and Byzantine Basilica. We took a brief hike up to the acropolis that eventually became a Venetian and then Turkish fort. After our visit of Butrint, we rode buses back to Sarande and up to the Ottoman Castle of Lekuris, where we enjoyed views, light refreshments, and traditional musical entertainment.
