  • The Albania is a country that holds many surprises. To understand thoroughly the culture is important to visit traditional houses like this. The type of construction, the subdivision of the rooms, the furniture, allow you to fully understand local traditions. The explanation of the handler, who speak enough Italian, backed by our knowledgeable guide, was an added plus. The Government demands that the houses are subject to ongoing maintenance, and to cover the costs, some citizens have decided to open their homes to tourists. A great idea!

Where to stay in Gjirokaster

As a World Heritage Site, Gjirokaster attracts a fair number of tourists. However, there are a limited number of hotels, and even fewer hostels. The town is divided into two sections: the atmospheric old town is up on a hill, and the newer part is down below in the valley. Most of the historical attractions lie in the old town; staying here puts you within easy reach and saves you a daily walk or taxi ride up and down the hill.
