Only recently have travelers begun to regard Albania as a top vacation destination in spite of its perfect location along the idyllic Mediterranean Sea. This is budget-friendly Balkan getaway typically sees fewer crowds than the surrounding areas and is full of nature, charm, and history. Albania has emerged as a place to learn about architecture, relax on the beaches, try new cuisines, and meet friendly locals.
Transportation can be a challenge for travelers visiting Albania for the first time since it’s not well-connected by international rail systems like many other places in Europe. So it’s a good idea to plan at least some of your itinerary in advance so that you don’t miss out on the sights you really want to see.
