Albania is in southeast Europe on the Balkan Peninsula, with the Adriatic Sea to the west and the Ionian Sea to the southwest.
Its beautiful, diverse landscape comprising huge mountains, archaeological sites and idyllic villages have propelled the country to the top of most European ‘must visit’ lists in recent years.
The capital, Tirana boasts impressive Ottoman architecture, and the 362-kilometre coastline is blessed with some superb beaches, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
The port of Durres is approximately 35 kilometres east of Tirana and can be found just off the SH2 motorway, whilst the ports in Vlora and Saranda, which are further south, are served by the coastal SH8 route.
Travelling by ferry is a convenient way to explore the Mediterranean and Albania offers a number of crossings across the Adriatic Sea, operated by a wide choice of ferry companies. Also, with a few ports spread along on its stunning coast, there’s no shortage of sailing options.
The Ionian Islands are a group of Greek Islands off the West coast of Greece in the Ionian Sea, also known as the Western Greek Islands. The Islands we traditionally called Heptanese which means “the Seven Islands” in Greek, symbolising the seven principal islands in the group.
Unlike the Cyclades, the Ionian Islands are known to be flourishing with greenery. With distinct tradition, cuisine and architecture on each of the islands, it is hard not to fall for the Ionian Islands.
