Butrint

 

Butrint, located in southern Albania, was an ancient city through Greek, Roman, and Byzantine periods before finally being abandoned during the Middle Ages (possibly the result of a malaria epidemic).

What remains is a superb archeological site that includes an impressive Roman amphitheater, a Byzantine Basilica (the largest in the world after Hagia Sophia in Istanbul), a Roman temple with mosaic floor, a beautifully carved lion’s gate. Together these form a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The nearby town of Saranda makes for a good travel base, as it is situated on a beautiful horseshoe bay between the mountains and the Ionian Sea as part of the “Albanian Riviera.”

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
