UNESCO - Butrint, Albania

I was already too happy to arrange a swap for an Albanian card; when I received this great Unesco view, I was over the moon :))) Thank you so much Sonni!
Butrint or Buthrotum was an ancient Greek and later Roman city in Epirus region - in modern times it is an archeological site in Sarandë District in Albania, some 14 kilometres south of Sarandë and close to the Greek border. Bouthroton  was one of the major centres of the Ancient Greek tribe of Chaonians. The earliest archaeological evidence of settled occupation dates to between 10th and 8th centuries BC.
The amphitheatre on the photo dates from the 3rd century BC and  is situated at the foot of the acropolis.
