You’ve had it with tropical holidays. How many more palm tree-laden photos can you snap? You’re ready for something different. Somewhere European…maybe a place near the Adriatic Sea. A place where neon-bright buildings sit amidst rolling hills.
You’re ready for a trip to Tirana, the capital of Albania, and Wotif is ready to take you there. Book one of our Tirana car hire deals today to see it all.
Indulge your artistic and spiritual sides in one go at Et’hem Bey Mosque in the city centre. It took some 30 years to complete this masterpiece, begun in the 1790s, and its exquisite frescoes include images of waterfalls and trees.
Next, point your Tirana car rental about 5km east to the Dajti Ekspres. This cable car will bring you up Dajti Mountain, and after a relaxing trip you can grab a bite to eat at one of the mountaintop restaurants. Don’t forget to check out those views!
When you have your car hire in Tirana, it’s only natural to take it elsewhere. Put the pedal to the metal and head 35km west to Durres. This ancient port city has plenty for you to explore; take in the Durres Amphitheatre, a set of well-preserved ruins built in the second century. Artistic types will enjoy the mosaics still clinging to some of its walls, whereas Russell Crowe fans can reenact their favourite scenes from Gladiator.
While you’re in town, don’t forget to visit the Byzantine Forum, the ruins of an old marketplace. You can’t buy incense or fancy silks here anymore, but those columns still look pretty cool.
If we had to pick a fantastic undiscovered holiday destination for you, Albania would be it, and Wotif’s Tirana packages are the perfect way to get there. Why drop extra dollarydoos on multiple websites? We’ll get you all set up for your European extravaganza.
