Day 01
Arrival in Albania and visit of Shkodra

Your guide will welcome you at the airport in Tirana or Podgorica. During the transfer to the hotel close to Shkodra’s centre, (90 minutes) you can gather first impressions.

Lined with bourgeoisie townhouses, a reminder of the city’s rich past, it has a certain Italian atmosphere to it.
