Welcome to Albania
Albania has been closed to outsiders for half of the 20th century, earning the title of Mediterranean last secret.
About this tour
But, with the end of the communist regime in 1991, Albania opens its gates. The first curious visitors to arrive discovered a land where ancient codes of conduct still held sway and remnants of forgotten ancient Greek and Roman sites, stunning mountain scenery, and dreamy beaches rivaling any in the Mediterranean. A country that knows how to amuse the traveler with its hospitality.
