During this day trip we will visit the ruins of the ancient city of Apollonia which is located on the right bank of Vjosa river. An Illyrian settlement which later got more new inhabitants from Greek islands and the mainland. Apollonia flourished in the Roman period. It was home to a renowned school of philosophy, acquiring fame as a cultural center…. The city began to decline in the 3rd century AD when its harbor started silting up as a result of an earthquake.
