Discover in one day the two most important cities of Albania with a local guide!


Durres is the second biggest city in Albania, and one of the most visited by tourists interested in ancient history and culture. It is situated in the center of Albania in the Adriatic coast, 30 km from the capital Tirana. In Durres we shall visit the main promenade, the ruins of the Roman amphitheater (the biggest in Balkans), Byzantine walls, Venetian tower and the archaeological museum.

We will drive from Durres to Tirana, the colorful capital of Albania that is changing day by day. In Tirana during our walk we will see how the city has changed after the fall of communism. Architecture in Tirana is one for the books beacuse the city has gone through three different periods in 70 years. The Italian one during the WW1, the communist one during the WW2, and the democracy in 1991. So while we walk we will see the Italian boulevard and government buildings, communist era quarters and modern skyscrapers.
