Was an ancient Greek and later Roman city and bishopric in Epirus.Perhaps inhabited since prehistoric times, Buthrotum was a city of the Epirote tribe of the Chaonians, later a Roman colony and a bishopric. It entered into decline in Late Antiquity, before being abandoned during the Middle Ages after a major earthquake flooded most of the city. In modern times it is an archeological site in Vlorë County, Albania, some 14 kilometres south of Sarandë and close to the Greek border. It is located on a hill overlooking the Vivari Channel and is part of the Butrint National Park. Today Bouthrotum is a Latin Catholic titular see and also features the Ali Pasha Castle.

It's not fancy it's not quite and it's definitely not gourmet. But it's a place that serves big portions with fresh products and probably the best prices in the city. Definitely the most value for maoney place in the city. WARNING don't go there if: -You dont like loud environment. -You are not really hungry. -And you are vegetarian.

During the summer season avoid cars inside the city.

During the summer Saranda has really bad traffic. So number one rule would be to avoid moving inside the city by the car, if you dont want to get stack in the traffic all day.
Jak ušetřit

Converting money

Converting money to Albanian Lek is a key thing to do if you want to save some money during your stay in albanian. The reason for that is beacuse a lot of places accept Euros and dollars but with a really bad exhcange rate usually 1 for 1. Now about the converting part there are a lot of places in Saranda, but not all of them have good rates. You should definetly avoid exchanging money to the ''rruga 1'' (first road) as it is called in Albanian because its the most commercial road and they have really bad rates.
