Day 1
One Day Trip

Meet the clients at port of Durres. Departure for trip to the main interesting objects of Tirana.

The capital of the Republic of Albania, Tirana is sited just 300 feet above sea level at the foot of Dajti Mountain. The city was founded in 1614 and consisted of a mosque, bathhouse, a bakery and some shops. It became a major market town specializing in silk, cotton cloth, leather, ceramics, metals and silver. A brief panoramic drive introduces you to the city.

Watch for Skanderbeg Square before visiting the Ethem Bey Mosque, built in 1789, and the clock tower, which stands 100 feet tall.

The National Art Gallery contains more than 4,000 works of art by Albanian and foreign authors, spanning seven centuries of cultural heritage. Its diverse sections range from National Revival to Byzantine Art, and from charcoal and graphite drawings to the post 1950s era.

At the National Museum, gain an insight into Albania’s rich history.

The Dajti Express Cable Car promises a scenic ride from Tirana to its upper station near the top of the 5,300-foot-tall mountain. Take in views of the mountain and the city as you swoop over pastures, a lake and steep rocks to a recreation area some 4,000 feet above sea level.

Hiking trails lead through lush forest and are popular with the locals. Spend some time at leisure here. Savor a local lunch served at the mountain Dajti Tower restaurant.
