Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
The hotels were generally very good and modern. The food had a wide choice generally with plenty of choice too for veggies. Having said that you were never quite sure how big a portion you were going to get from large to absolutely enormous. Some dishes have to be taken very literally, i.e. olive salad was 100 olives and half a sprig of lettace. Some local dishes, the 'pies', have to be tried and plenty for the sweet tooth.
You have to like churches and history and cultural heritage though. It can start to become a bit over powering but you don't have to do absolutely everything.
As a beer drinker the choice was lager or lager but some of the darker choices (when you could find them) were very nice. The selection of wines got variable comments from the group. No cider, a surprise given the number of vine-yards.
Don't expect much night life except at the coastal resorts. Most places are shut by 10pm
Don't expect too much souvenir buying either, not that I am complaining.
The weather was warm and sunny for early September. However we encountered quite a few thunderstorms too so bring an umbrella rather than waterproofs.
Butrint was planned as my top place to see. Good but let down by a guide whose knowledge was skin deep. By contrast Apollonia had the ideal guide who knew his stuff.
You wouldn't need to change much more than £150 for the whole trip unless you have expensive tastes
