Albania

Scopra le vette quasi incontaminate delle Alpi albanesi. Scelga una vacanza sulle spiagge di sabbia immacolata dell'Albania come Vlora e Dhermi, lungo le coste del Mar Ionio e Adriatico. Visiti villaggi e cittadine rimaste quasi intatte nel corso degli anni e sorseggi un bicchiere di raki (una bevanda locale fortemente alcolica per l'aperitivo fatta con prugne e uva) in un bar o presso un ristorante.

Holidays in Albania

""

Not long ago the most isolated country in Europe, Albania has taken giant steps forward. Laze on unspoilt golden, sandy beaches and explore beautiful lakes such as Ohrid and Koman. Culture-lovers will be absorbed by well preserved 'museum cities' like Berat, also known as the 'city of a thousand windows' for the multi-windowed dwellings that seem to tumble down the hillside.
