Day - 15

Vlora

semi-overcast

Again I got up too late and missed the bus to Saranda.
But there was a midday bus to Vlora, so I took it.

Vlora is a costal city, the second largest port of Shqiperia.
It is the closest port to Italy and there are ferries between Vlora and Brindisi.

It is also a beach holidays place. In the summer many groups from Europe come there.
It's on the border of the Adriatic and Ionian seas.

Vlora has a large sandy bay, protected from the weather by the surrounding mountains.

However, the beaches are pretty far from the city so you have to take a bus or rent a car to go there, or stay in one of the beach resorts.

I found the surrounding pretty nice but there is not much to do in the city.
