We start our day in Tirana, driving approximately 60 km towards Kamara Bridge located in the vicinity of Librazhd. We will make an interesting detour visiting one of the stations of Egnatia in the vicinity of Elbasan. After this visit we will proceed towards our destination.
'Via Egnatia' was a road constructed by the Romans in the 2nd century BC. It crossed Illyricum, Macedonia, and Thrace, running through territory that is now part of modern Albania, North Macedonia, Greece, and European Turkey. We start our walk by crossing Shkumbin River via Kamara Bridge, a cobblestone ottoman bridge built in 1715, and continue uphill to reach Via Egnatia. The walk is considered moderate, with 466 m elevation, 6km total length for a duration of approx. 3 hours.
The first part of the day we'll be mostly in the shade so you might need warmer clothes. A windproof /waterproof jacket and a warm fleece and hiking shoes, as well as trekking sticks, are recommended.
Technical Info: This walk is considered moderate, with 466 m of elevation, 6 km total length of the trail, and a duration of approximately 3 hours. Travel time to head of the trail is 1 hour (one way).
