The Tirana Walking Tour is for people who like to see the highlights of Tirana and get a better understanding of the history of one of the most interesting capitals of Europe. The tour will lead you to Skanderbeg square and two typical Albanian bazaars where you can shop like the locals do and gaze at all the clothes and delicious fresh Albanian fruits, vegetables, nuts, olives and herbs. As well as for other hidden corners of the city. We will visit the National Historical Museum and explore the famous “Blloku” area, which used to be the most restricted area of the city but can now be defined as the small “Soho” of Tirana. The tour will end at the Tirana park at the lake; the place where Tirana inhabitants come to work out, make a walk, or relax in the shadow of the trees on a hot summer day.

You can either join one of our scheduled departures (please see the calendar at the right) or you can book this tour as a private departure.
