Truly one of Europe's undiscovered places
Explore one of Europe’s most untouched destinations, rich in
history and staggeringly beautiful landscapes. Lose yourself in ancient
Mediterranean cities, charming fishing villages and Ottoman-inspired bazaars.
Stay along the Albanian Riviera, waking up in a luxe hotel converted from
restored stone cottages where the very walls elicit a sense of history. Hike in
the Nemercka Alps, then refuel on farm-to-table dining representative of the
country’s culinary traditions. Delve into 60,000 years of history at the
National Historical Museum of Albania in Tirana and visit the innovative
Bunk’Art, a huge Cold War bunker-turned-history and contemporary art museum.
Spend the night in an Ottoman mansion amidst the pine, olive and cherry groves
of UNESCO World Heritage-protected Berat. Visit the ruins of Butrint, a
historian’s delight. Everywhere you turn, feel the warmth and friendliness of
Albania, a veritable melting pot of Balkan cultures from the Illyrians and
Trojans to the Bulgars and Ottomans.
