Someone has asked for comments on the day trip to Albania. We did this trip in June 2001 and it was excellent. The British "locals" in Corfu tried to put us off going, giving the impression that Albania was full of muggers and rapists, even telling me not to wear my wedding ring. Glad we went. You need your passport for the trip.The crossing on the hydrofoil takes 45 mins. First stop was a local restaurant where we could change money. Then we went to Butrint which is an archealogical site. This isn't included in the excursion price, so make sure you have money or a credit card with you, you pay at Corfu harbour. Archeology isn't really my thing, but when we went there was an English professor overseeing the "dig" and he made it really interesting. A meal is included in the basic excursion price and that was excellent, but grab a table as soon as you arrive, we had some very spread out Germans with us. Visiting Corfu in June and will definately do this trip again.
