Definitely a must see in Saranda, Albania. It is amazing when you walk around it. It takes around 2 hours. It is in beautiful nature between trees, all around you will be in shade.

I imagine you'll have the opportunity to book on board your cruise. If not the tour companies will almost certainly be awaiting the ship at the port to make the most of the visiting tourists. Enjoy!
