Albania, Villas

Travel, three days in Albania here is what to see

There are at least four good reasons for choosing to spend a vacation on the other side of the Adriatic: the speed of the connection, the beaches, the night life of Tirana and the food at modest prices

For business or pleasure, Albania is becoming a destination increasingly popular with Italians especially in the last period, in which we are seeing a significant increase in connections from central and southern Italy with capital Tirana. There are at least four good reasons for choosing to spend a vacation on the other side of the Adriatic. First, the speed of the connection: from Pescara, for example, is reached Tirana in one hour and twenty minutes, which also allows to easily organize also tour flash; beaches: those on the Albanian coast are still not as crowded compared to many other places inflated and have nothing to envy to other destinations Adriatic; special mention deserves the night life of Tirana, the city in turmoil and living evenings and music, especially in summer; Finally, there is the opportunity to enjoy the best fresh seafood at great prices, which do not mind.

A short guide to three-day trip. The tour in Albania can only start from the capital Tirana. Skanderbeg Square is huge, here is a strong feeling of being in a city reborn and who is eager to be known by all. Almost all Albanians speak Italian well and people are very helpful, kind and discreet with them it will not be difficult to make yourself understood. In Tirana it breathes almost anywhere patriotic spirit, with the two-headed eagle and its red and black flags flutter from the houses, companies and of course the accommodation. The city center is about 17 kilometers from the international airport of Tirana, which is dedicated to Mother Teresa of Calcutta. On the main square, named after the patriot Gjergj Kastrioti Skënderbeu, which is dedicated an imposing statue, facing the Clock Tower, built with the help of wealthy families, as it was in his time the same Tirana, Mosque Etem Bei 1789, one of the oldest buildings of the entire city and the Opera House, the largest theater in the whole of Albania. In Tirana still, you can see what remains of the pyramid, the mausoleum of former dictator Hoxha, and the Castle of Tirana, also known as Fortress of Justinian and the bridge of tobacco, in a central position. Mandatory tour in Blloku, where there were the residences of the former communist dictator Enver Hoxha and of the highest officials of the party: that area until 25 years ago inaccessible today is filled with shops, colorful houses, youth and is all intents and purposes the hub of nightlife Albanian. Instead, to better understand the history of the Albanian people and its developments painful, it is necessary to visit the Museum of National History. To eat in Tirana there are plenty of restaurants where you can taste the flavors of the Mediterranean, olives, feta and other excellent local cheeses, but also soups, lamb, polenta. Excellent bread typical Albanian, perhaps to accompany small appetizers here called meze. Rather remarkable wine, while the espresso around here is not fantasy. In the evening moving from one point to another and out late is not a problem thanks to taxis always present on the road and more than affordable prices (it is preferable to payment in lek).

Moving to the coast instead, we choose Durres, which provides a significant amount of hotels, apartments and sea view in front of any kind. The road to it is not particularly easy to walk away toward the center you can find dozens and dozens of renovated apartments, with sea and air conditioning, whose external conditions do not really do justice to the interior comfort. Beach umbrellas and sun beds are not lacking, there are also those who sell fruit, sunscreen. The right ingredients for a relaxing stay there in Durres where there also were outside the program: while you’re lying in the sun, in fact, may happen to catch a glimpse on the shore wacky characters that run quietly with a bear on a leash and a polaroid to attract tourists … stuff as to shiver not just animal lovers! You will naturally ask you if you are not taking too much sun. After admiring a spectacular sunset red, Durres there is plenty of choice for dinner: in particular, if you are a fish lover, here you can eat excellent fresh food in special places. Discreet and friendly will serve everything from imaginative carpaccio with strawberries oysters giants, until al dente linguine or paccheri and creamy desserts. In Durres center offers a good amount of shops, bars, there are archaeological remains, squares with the architecture of a modern seaside town. Many taverns, bars and pubs and even pizzerias: you can make meals slap spending less than 10 euro.

Choose a vacation in Albania is a good alternative between Greece and the Balkan coast, where you can find the facilities and flavors of the first and the spirit that characterizes the people of the second. Just free your mind from the stereotypes and ignore those among acquaintances will not hesitate to ask, “What are you going to do in Albania?” To prepare eyes and heart to a country that is eager to welcome and to feel good about their guests .

If we are thinking about, know that until the end of 2015 the tour operator Balkan Express Abruzzo by new routes from central and southern Italy (Pescara-Bari-Brindisi) in Tirana. “In particular there are two flights a week, on Friday and Monday for Albania – explains Igor Dry, commercial director of the Balkan Express – for now the results are good and the planes are almost always full. We hope to be able to increase the number of routes to Tirana. ” A flight that connects even entrepreneurship.
