Tirana

Albania
Tirana travel packages

A city with everything. Tirana has striking architecture, delicious cuisine, and gorgeous nature.

When you feel like you’ve seen everything in Europe, Tirana is the city to visit. This is one of our favorite places to travel in Albania for vacations. It’s unlike any other destination, and one of the continent’s hidden gems. Untouched by chains yet cosmopolitan, Tirana interweaves influences from around Albania, Europe and beyond. You’ll take in a mix of eye-catching building styles in Tirana. And you can taste a melange of fresh flavors in Albanian cuisine. The city is a little rough around the edges, but it's very safe. Above all Tirana is a colorful place with very welcoming locals. You’ll have a wonderful time watching Tirana's history come alive. If you’d like a change of pace, the surrounding countryside and mountains of Albania are exquisite.

There’s plenty to explore in Tirana, with ample daytime and nightlife options. We recommend a walking tour in Tirana to get the lay of the land. The Blokku area has a vibrant dining and cafe scene. Restaurants there feature creative local dishes that make unique use of a spectrum of influences. There aren’t many cities like Tirana left in Europe. It's a reasonably priced and inviting destination with a real mix of cultures. Yet it remains virtually untouched by tourists. And it really is an exciting time to visit. Tirana and the surrounding countryside of Albania certainly have enough to keep you busy for a couple of days. It’s worth traveling to the nearby Dajti Mountain, with its stunning views of Tirana and beyond. We’re sure you’ll enjoy your visit. We can offer several modern hotel options according to your needs. Tirana is one of the highlights of travel in Albania. Your time there will be unforgettable.

What I love about Tirana

It's difficult not to come to Tirana with some preconceptions, possibly negative. They will be dispelled in minutes. Welcoming locals, particularly towards Americans, quirky architecture, crazy cheap and fabulously tasty local food. That's the impression you'll leave with.

Things to do in Tirana

If you've got more than a day in Tirana then you'll want to explore a little more. At the very least you can get out to Mt Dajti, taking a cable car nearly to the top to admire its views, or set out on a hike. Set into the mountain is Bunk'art, a decommissioned fallout shelter built for the dictator Enver Hoxha and his elites, now a combination museum documenting the communist era and art installation gallery. Further afield, you could take day trips to the breathtaking Albanian Riviera or UNESCO-listed Berat or the closer town of Kruja, on a day trip that combines a stop at a biodiverse winery and garden-restaurant. Our Best of Tirana Private Tour gets you around all the highlights, including Bunk'art, with a private guide showing you the way and telling you the stories as you go. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose additional excursions to include in your vacation package or consider adding later.

The JayWay Travel experience is customized and personalized. Each trip will be unique to you and it is a wonderful way to ensure you focus on what matters most while travelling (sights, activities, etc.) rather than booking hotels, transfers, etc. that take up so much of your time and energy.

Albania and Macedonia were exotic and fascinating and the people were very welcoming to me. Without the localized staff to assist me I do not think this trip would have been so satisfying. I highly endorse all services.
