Explore the hidden gems of Montenegro with visits to Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina
What makes Albania so seductive is its relative remoteness and recent isolation from the rest of the region. While the coastal areas are attractively familiar, here at Jules Verne we will also open your eyes to the riches further inland. The mountains of Albania conceal Ottoman fortresses and ancient Illyrian sites, historic villages, monasteries and mosques.
Unlike so many travel destinations, much of the country remains unspoilt, so there is still an array of treasures to explore on your Albania trip. It’s not just what you will see that makes a tour through Albania special, but it is also what you will get the chance to hear. With its Greek, Latin, Turkic and Slav influences – as well as its own unique notes. – the language is intriguing.
Travel through this country is dictated by local weather conditions, but you can rest assured that wherever we take you, you’ll find yourself in one of our hand-picked, comfortable hotels. One thing we promise is that you can be sure to see and visit captivating castles, mountain scenery and some of the best Ottoman architecture examples you’ll find anywhere on Earth.
Book on to our Grand Tour of Albania and you’ll get to witness Berat, a UNESCO World Heritage site, before making your way to Apollonia, a gorgeous city which flourished in Roman times. From there, you’ll continue on your way to see the stunning Albanian Riviera, before enjoying spectacular views of the island of Corfu. Your Albania holiday will be one that you’ll remember forever.
With a Mediterranean climate, Albania experiences rainy yet mild winters and hot, sunny summers – especially along the coast. To ensure that you get the most out of your Albania tour with us, we would recommend that you book your trip throughout the spring or autumn months, as these are generally the best times to visit.
If you are looking for an unforgettable tour in a fantastic destination, one of our tours to Albania will be ideal for you. One of the highlights of our trips to Albania includes the opportunity to travel alongside an experienced tour guide, which means that you have the chance to ask as many questions about the destination as you like!
