Tirana, the capital of Albania, may not be familiar to many but the city has plenty on offer. Besides its pleasant climate, Tirana is a hub of culture, museums, remarkable buildings and beautiful parks. If you want to see more than the city itself, you can take a trip to the mountainous hinterland or visit the seaside resort of Dürres. A great way to combine a city break with a beach holiday.
