Albania is one of the most interesting countries in Europe and one of the friendliest. It is also a place worth visiting if you want to experience a real adventure. The country will surprise you with its magnificent beaches, pristine valleys, delicious food, and friendly people.
The country is absolutely safe and welcoming, people are warm and nice. depending on the time of year you will be coming and how long you will stay I would suggest you drive to Berat, visit the castle, then go to Vlora and drive to Saranda, the road is great and you will see the beautiful Jonian coast.
When it comes to activities, parks are free, and while museums require tickets to enter, the fees are low. For shopping, bear in mind that many shops take only Albanian lekë (the local currency), but hotels take euros as well.
