Today our attraction is Apollonia which is an ancient city. Due to its fame and importance it was known as Apollonia Prima built to honour Apollo. Caesar chose to send his nephew Augustus Octavian to study oratory in Apollonia revealing the importance of this ancient city. The must visits spots of Apollonia are: The Encircling Wall, the Terraced Wall with arched gates, the monument of Agonothetes, the Library, the Odeon, the Portico, the House with mosaics, the Museum of Apollonia, the Church of Saint Mary. Entering the Apollonia site through the small iron gate, you walk towards the central group of ancient religious and mercantile buildings. After visiting Apollonia we will continue to Ardenica. High above the lowlands of the fertile Myzeqe between Fier and Lushnje runs a forested ridge parallel to the Durres-Vlore highway. Through the pine tree one can have a glimpse of the church tower of Ardenica. The Monastery of Ardenica is located close to the village of Kolonja. The monastery of Ardenica is known as a place where our National Hero Gjergj Kastriori Scandarbeg got married with princess Andronika Arianiti. After visiting the historical monuments, we will have a traditional lunch and then travel back to Tirana.
