During this day trip we will visit a city, with ruins dating from the Roman era and some Royal Graves of Illyrian Kings.

The city of Elbasan is one of the largest in Albania. In fact, though it has an early Ottoman name, it was definitely an Illyrian settlement since the 4th century BC. Settled on the valley of Shkumbini river, it developed and expanded as a station along the famous Via Egnatia Roman road. The Romans called it ‘Ad-Quintum mansio’.

Often it is mentioned as "The Cradle of Education" in Albania due to the first teacher training college, or “Town of Music" related to the home of the greatest composer and musician of central Albania, Master Isuf Myzyri . The city is well-known for its special traditional desert (Ballakume), and also for its delicious soft drink "Boza".

Not far from the city, situated on the slope of the hill opposite the village of Selca we will visit the Royal Tombs of Selca e Poshtme. More on the site. . ....
