Check out the “thank you” video from the band and all the great photos of your efforts on our socials. It's been a long time coming, but it is finally here!
The old name of the city was Antipatrea, built on the slopes of mountain Tomorri, with a castle dominating over the city.
Within the city walls there are houses and the Onufri Museum, where we see paintings by this outstanding painter from the 16th century, as well as paintings from his son Nikolla.
We will spend most of our time touring in the old part of the town.
This is perhaps one of the best-preserved Ottoman cities in the Balkans, with a lively lower town and a beautiful medieval citadel district on top of the hill.
A huge thank you to all the Met fans and our hosts at food banks across the country who helped make our first All Within My Hands Day of Service a massive success.
Thanks to all of you, hundreds of thousands of pounds of food was packed and will be distributed to those in need.
In the fantastic interiors of the 18th century Church of St Mary, the iconostasis dominates the nave, but equally impressive is the golden pulpit, which positively heaves with adornments, not to mention the frescoes of the Zografi brothers that can be seen on display upstairs.
We continue to Apollonia, founded in 558 BC by settlers from Corfu and Corinth.
This 1st century construction is currently under consideration for inscription as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
We will also walk from the amphitheatre over to the ruins of the Roman Baths located behind the Aleksander Moisiu Theatre on the central square.
Elton was an excellent tour leader and had a very personable manner.
