Getting Around

There are several ways to get around in Saranda with surroundings.

The Bus:

The Bus leaves from the centre of Saranda (The Nene Theresa Square).

There is no real busstops (except for the start at the centre) - when the bus passes you just wave and the bus stops and you get on. When you want to hop off you just tell the chauffeur to stop. There are several bus-lines going in different directions.

There is one bus going to the southerns parts, following the Ruga Butrinti towards Butrinti, passing Ksamil on the way. It takes 20-25 minutes to go all the way to Butrinti. The price to go with bus is 100 LEK (all the way to Butrint but also if you hop off earlier). You pay to either the chauffeur or a conductor on the bus in cash.

You find the timetable at the bus stop in the centre.

Many people walk their way in Saranda. The promenade is very beautiful and most restaurants, hotels and shops is in a nice distance. To walk is a nice way of seeing more of the real life in the town and of course you also get some exercise though some parts of Saranda is quite hilly!
