I would really appreciate a bit of help here. I'm at the stage when I have read a lot about Albania and got myself totally over-excited about seeing various things but am trying to work it into something manageable.
Our trip isn't until next summer so we have a bit of time to get things sorted.
What do you think about this:
Vlorë and 'Riviera'
I know I have missed loads out; I really wanted to visit Pogradec, for example. But I…
Would really love to visit Albania in the summer, based on some great stuff I've read on the web. Just need a bit of advice and reassurance now ;)
1). It seems to be a warm and safe country. I guess that includes the attitude towards single mothers?
2). I am a nervous but very capable driver. Would I be able to manage - or even enjoy renting a car?
3). How busy are the beaches really in the summer months?
4). How easy is it to drive from Macedonia? I like the look of Ohrid and the…
We want to go to Valbona in one day (or shorter.)by public transportation.
Where in Shkoder we find the transportation to Koman lake. In what time ? bus/minibus ?
How to from Fierze to Valbona ?
We're going to Albania soon and hiring a car in Sarande. We plan to drive up the coast road to Vlore then back to Sarande via Gjirokaster among other places.
Will it take a whole day to drive from Sarande to Vlore if we set off around 10am? Obviously we'll stop on route for photos, food etc rather than drive non-stop. Or would it be possible to do all this AND get to Gjirokaster in the early evening?
I've tried google and various websites but they don't route you via the coast road between Sarande…
I would like to know if there are week-ends flea markets in Tirana and Shkodra. I would like also to know the timetable of the buses Tirana-Shkodra on Sunday and where can I take it.
We're a couple that plan to do the PoB route in the end of September till ~October 8th, start&end in Theth. We're aware that this is a bit in the end of the season/off-season and therefore:
1) are there an deserted villages that we should not expect an accommodation? and if so, which villages we should expect to be like that?
2) Is there any market/place that we can buy basic groceries for lunch along the route?
3) How much water do you recommend to take per day (can we fill from springs or…
I want to visit Albania in mid October.
Can I depend on the Corfu ferry to be running every day, and on time or near enough? I've read stories, dating back a few years, of the ferry not running, with no warning.
I want to make my way from the south to Tirana, then fly back from there.
Where could I hear live folk music?
I am vegetarian. Will that be much of a problem? I eat fish ok.
What will the temperatures be like?
I will probably have other questions too, so thanks in advance!
I am going to Tirana for three days. Is there any interesting place nearby Tirana to do a day excursion (go and back the same day)? Any fleamarket for old things in Tirana? Interesting places to visit in Tirana?
I've searched through the forums and although there is some existing information on this topic, I wanted to make sure I was using the most recent info.
Does anyone have any recent experience of traveling from Tirana to Pristina by bus? Or perhaps a link to a timetable... if such a thing exists? Looking for times for Thursday 22nd September.
we'll be travelling around Albania for a couple of weeks (three people).First up in mountain area with public transport.
Later to Berat, albanian riviera, Butrint and Girokastra... for this second part of journey, is it worth hiring a car or is it possible to do it with public transport? is it feasible taking taxi from one town to another or is it very costly? Thanks
