Full description

Shkodra is a pretty city full of light and things to do, including cafes, shops, and beautiful sights on each corner. Enjoy a full-day driving and touring around the city, with sights of ancient architecture and the iconic Rozafa Castle.

First, visit wUra e Mesit (the middle bridge), a bridge located in the village of Mes, on the Kir river, about five kilometers north-east of Shkoder. This bridge connects the city with the ancient site of Drisht, which preserves important testimonies of Roman and medieval architecture.

The tour's highlight is a visit to the legendary Rozafa Castle, whose original core was raised by the Illyrians in the 4th century BC. Subsequently, the fortress was enlarged during the Middle Ages and the Venetian period (1396-1478).

Here, you can take the opportunity to see Shkodra, its lake, and its mountains from a unique vantage point.
