Every year in the summer, The Turkish Napoleon, visited Lake Butrint to meet the Queen of the lake and enjoy the beauties that this area offers.
The mussel is the "Queen" for us. It gave health and welfare to Ali Pasha. These are some short stories to show how important the mussel was and is still today. It is a very special tour in this beautiful area of Albania, which in fact cannot be experienced anywhere else.
Usually we begin our tour with a traditional boat trip, wooden boat used by farmers and with a native guidance, which will lead across the lake, and enrich our travel stories and the numerous legends of the area.
During the trip we will see how the mussels are cultivated, we will learn more about the details of their growth, and after that we will get some fresh mussels, navigate to an area in a quiet beach and a lot of fantastic views of the whole area.
The crude mussel cooked with olive oil, lemon and parsley in the accompany of a glass of house white wine would be the perfect combination!
After standing for about an hour in this place to enjoy the comfort and the calm of centuries old that now reigns in this city, which once was so beautiful and noisy, and turn back to follow the sunset.
