A full-day-tour in Tirana

Tirana, the capital of Albania, is a city that seamlessly blends history, culture, and modernity. Embarking on a full day tour allows you to delve into its rich heritage, vibrant neighbourhoods, and architectural wonders. Here’s a way to make the most of your day in Tirana.

Start your day at the heart of Tirana, Skanderbeg Square. Named after the national hero, Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg, the square is surrounded by significant landmarks. Head to the trendy Blloku district for a mid-morning coffee break. Once a restricted area during communist rule, Blloku has transformed into a lively hub filled with cafes, boutiques, and art galleries.

For panoramic views of Tirana, take the Dajti Express cable car to Mount Dajti. Enjoy breathtaking vistas of the city and surrounding landscapes. Once back in the city, unwind in the Grand Park, a sprawling green oasis. As the day winds down, head to the New Bazaar (Pazari i Ri), a bustling market where locals and visitors alike gather. Finish your day by dining at one of the restaurants around the New Bazaar.

Make your way to the Pyramid of Tirana, a controversial and unique architectural structure. Originally built as a museum to honor the communist leader Enver Hoxha, it has since served various purposes. Savor Albanian cuisine for lunch at one of Tirana’s traditional restaurants. Allow your taste buds to indulge in the authentic flavors of Albanian gastronomy.

A day tour in Tirana can be one where you can learn about Tirana’s heritage, its culture, try traditional foods and also see the natural and human beauties that it possesses.
