You might think you know Albania, because you may have heard about its fabulous places.

Discovering Albania with Professor Tom Winnifrith
Just a a couple of kilometers across the straits from Corfu, Albania is much less visited and far more interesting. A visit with Professor Tom Winnifrith, who has written several books about the history and culture of Albania, includes the port of Saranda, the ruins of Butrint, crowded with layers of ancient civilisations, the idyllic, empty beaches strewn with abandoned pillboxes, archaeological digs, ruined churches and citadels and the fortified mountain town of Gjirokaster. Filmed in 2002, just five years after Albania was devastated by the collapse of a pyramid banking scheme and disintegrated into civil war.
