Excellent views from the large castle above, which houses a weapon museum! Some good restaurants in the narrow cobbled lanes of the old town.

 

Saranda: Touristic port and main town in the south. It’s built directly over a
Roman town which surfaces here and there. Best views are from the castle call “Lekuresi” high above.The restaurant on top is an idea for evening dining.
