What to See and Do in Albania

Don't be fooled by Albania's small size; there are more than enough natural attractions, cultural exhibits, and architectural wonders in this exciting corner of the world to satisfy even the most discerning traveller. Of particular interest to many first-time visitors to the region are: Bunk Art, a military museum situated on the outskirts of Tirana that once served as a cold war bunker; Butrint National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site located in the Ksamil village, where tourists can explore the ruins of the ancient city of Butrint; and Gjirokaster Castle, a former fortress housing the remnants of airplanes that were downed during the Second World War.

Best Time to Fly to Albania

Albania enjoys a Mediterranean climate characterized by dry, hot summers, pleasant springtimes and autumns, and rainy but mild winters. The peak tourist season runs from June to August, when tourists flock to the region to sunbathe on Albania's gorgeous beaches and tour the area's outdoor attractions. Hotel rates and airfares can be quite high during the peak season, however, so a better time for budget-minded travellers to visit the region is during the spring (March to May) or autumn months (September to November). Skyscanner's Price Alert tool can help you monitor airfares for a specific departure date so that you can book the cheapest possible flight to Albania.

Airports in Albania

Tirana International Airport (TIA) is the only international airport in Albania that handles regularly-scheduled international flights. It is located approximately 11 kilometres to the north-west of the city of Tirana. The airport boasts a newly-constructed passenger terminal that is capable of serving 1.5 million passengers. Among the services and amenities you'll find at this small, yet modern, facility are ATMs, currency exchange facilities, food concessions, retail outlets, and duty-free shops. The airport is served by Rinas Express and Adis Travel buses, which run hourly from the airport terminal to the city centre. Other ground transportation options for getting from Tirana International Airport to central Tirana are metered taxis and car rentals.

Travel Tips

The official language in Albania is Albanian. While English, French, Greek, and Italian are also widely spoken in the country, it may be helpful to learn a few local words and phrases if you plan to venture into the smaller towns and villages. Albania is relatively safe for tourists, but there are a few areas of the country that are best avoided — namely, the northern region between Kukes and Tropoje, and the southern village of Lazarat.
