Package Itinerary

Visit the capital city of Albania, a conglomeration of Ottoman and Italian influences, the Albanian capital of Tirana is always evolving.

We visit the National Museum, Skanderbeg Square, its clock, boulevard, the cemetery of heroes, Etem Bey mosque, artificial lake.

The National Museum of History is the country's largest museum and includes the following pavilions: Pavilion of Antiquity, Pavilion of the Middle Ages, Pavilion of Renaissance, Pavilion of Independence, Pavilion of Iconography, Pavilion of the National Liberation Antifascist War, Pavilion of Communist Terror, and Pavilion of Mother Teresa.

Skanderbeg Square is the main plaza of Tirana, at the time of the Albanian monarchy, a statue of Joseph Stalin was erected where today Skanderbeg's statue is located.

The Et'hem Bey mosque is located in the center of the Albanian capital Tirana. Construction was started in 1789 by Molla Bey and it was finished in 1823 by his son Ethem Pasha (Haxhi Ethem Bey), great-grandson of Sulejman Pasha. During the totalitarianism of the Socialist People’s Republic of Albania, the mosque was closed. On January 18, 1991, despite opposition from communist authorities, 10,000 people entered carrying flags. This was at the onset of the fall of communism in Albania. The frescoes of the mosque depict trees, waterfalls, and bridges; still, life paintings are a rarity in Islamic art.

Departure from your hotel with an English-speaking guide.

Some More About Tirana:

Albania might not be famed for its cuisine, but that’s no reason not to make food a focus. Look out for the excellent coffee and beer (Islam is the predominant religion but it is practiced in a very tolerant way), as well as decent pastries and good gelato. Cafés are the perfect place for people-watching, too, set to a soundtrack of Albanian and Euro-pop. If you want to make sure that you get a chance to try all the tasty traditional food that Tirana has to offer, make sure to book one of the food tours, so you don't miss a thing.
