Discover Albania’s unique history

What really makes Albania stand out is its unique blend of cultures that have influenced the country over the centuries. You can find traces of ancient Romans and Greeks, Byzantines and Turks, Venetians and the more recent communist era as you travel through the country. Some of the most incredible examples of Ottoman architecture can be found in the castle towns of Gjirokastra and Berat, the latter often going by its romantic nickname of “the city of thousand windows”.

Laze on the dreamy Riviera

Is there anything better than unwinding on a beautiful beach, with the warm blue sea stretching in front of you as far as you can see? There might be, sure, but that’s how we like to end our adventures! And Albania has got some aces up the sleeves. With plenty of scenic secluded bays, the country’s coastline has a spot for everyone, whether you prefer dramatic cliffs, pebbles or golden sand.


Best time to visit Albania

For the best weather, venture to Albania between April and October. The longer days and dry weather across the country will help you maximise your time exploring.
