“Albania's stunning mountain scenery and dreamy beaches rival any in the Mediterranean.” Lonely Planet

Why we love it

Home to one of the biggest amphitheatres in the Balkans, Durrës is the ancient port city of Albania. The town’s impressive history dates as far back as Roman times when life was all about fortresses, castles and city walls. Still standing today, much of the original architecture of Durrës remains intact, predominantly as a result of the country remaining closed to outsiders for much of the 20th century.

What's Included?

  • Experience a luxury getaway to Albania for two, with return flights from any major UK airport
  • Relax in a four-star hotel in Durrës for two nights including breakfast
  • Enjoy private transfers between Tirana airport and your hotel
  • Stay in the ancient town of Durrës, exploring your surroundings
  • Take a private guided half-day tour to visit the famous Roman amphitheatre, Venetian Tower, Archaeological Museum and Byzantine city walls

Description

Glittering waters, crinkled mountainsides and crumbling castles, Albania has been hailed as one of the most enchanting countries along the Mediterranean. Estranged from tourists until 1991 due to strict communist rule, this ancient country has retained its essence, evident in the beauty of the landscape and authenticity of the architecture.

During your stay in Albania, cosy up in a luxury room at a four-star hotel in the centre of Durrës. With breakfast each morning, start your day with a plate of Albanian delights, followed by the opportunity to explore at your leisure.

On a half-day private guided tour, visit the Roman amphitheatre and walk along the Venetian Tower and Byzantine wall. Wander the halls of the Archaeological and Ethnographic Museums, discover why this town was historically named the ‘Tavern of the Adriatic’. An ideal experience for couples looking for a romantic retreat, or some friends interested in a taste of adventure.
