This is a truly beautiful and magnificent place to visit. It was busy when we visited, as we were part of a coach trip, but if you are sensible you can tour the spring the opposite way round to everyone else and it is less...More

The Blue Eye truly is paradise and if you are staying in Sarande it's equally as worthwhile as the more well known trips to Butrint. We took a bus from the main square and cost around 200 Lek. Taxi drivers were asking for 4000 Lek...More

Visited as part of a tour from Corfu - certainly a beautiful location, but bit of a tourist trap. There is a long winding dirt road, which gets clogged with coaches and taxis. Worth seeing as part of a tour but I wouldn't make a...More

This is a beautiful lake near Sarande. Just a 30 minute journey by car and well worth it. Only takes 20 mins to have a quick look/walk around as it's small but totally stunning.

Blue Eye is situated about 50 minutes drive from the old town of Gjirokaster. Lots of winding roads for last 20 minutes. Take care and slow down if you are not use to it. Blue Eye is amidst nowhere. The reflection off the river gives...More

We hired a taxi to drive us from Kalemi to Girokaster and he stopped on the way for us. Taxis are really economical in Albania.
Ciao Sergio, sei andato al Syri Kalter con il taxi? Quanto si paga, è economico? Io partirò tra 2 settimane, non vedo l'ora!!! Volevamo prendere un'auto a noleggio, ma oltre ad essere costosetto, so che le strade e le indicazioni non sono un granchè! Ti ringrazio in anticipo per i consigli.. Saluti, Francesca
