Visit Tirana, The modern Capital of 1001 opportunities. Plenty of things to visit and see in the city including a visit of the Check Point Block (Blloku), The Martyrs Avenue, Scanderbeg Square and one of the oldest mosque in the town, the Et-hem Beg Mosque. Have you ever heard about "The United Colors of Tirana"? To be explored during the tour….

The little town of Kruje with such a long history and pride for the Albanians, related to the story of the legendary hero, Scanderbeg. The highlight of the visit is the local cuisine. There is a local saying "Lick the fingers". Do as the locals do.

Where to find a combination of different civilizations?
Where can you see the remains from the Hellenistic, Illyrian, Roman, Venetian & Ottoman eras, all mixed in one place? It's called Durres, situated on a natural harbor and boasting the ruins of the largest amphitheater in the Balkans. It's still there, ready to be explored…
