Tirane and Berat

On this tour you will be able to explore the capital, Tirana, the political –cultural –economical center of Albania. We will go through the turbulent political life of the XVIV cen. that signed the birth of the first Albanian Monarchy and later on the Fascist and Nazism establishment. The People Republic of Albania, the bloodiest dictatorship of Europe that lasted more than 4 decades and the rebirth of the country in the 90s.

After the city tour of Tirana, transfer to Berat, one of the three UNESCO sites in Albania.

The museum town of Berat is locally called as “the city of a thousand windows” for the many windows in the white plastered, terracotta roofed houses on terraces overlooking the Osum river. High hill, a 14th century citadel shelters many small Orthodox churches. The city itself was established in the 3rd century BC on the site of an earlier settlement by the Illyrians and was named Antipatrea. For a very brief time in 1944, Berat was the capital of the liberated Albania.
