During this walking tour you will see most of the historical sights, known attractions and the popular neighborhoods of Tirana, while learning about the history and hearing interesting stories. We will meet in the center of the city at Skanderbeg Square. During the next few hours you will see the sights around the Square (Palace of Culture, National Bank, Et’hem Bej Mosque, Clock Tower (optional to go up) and National Museum), the New Bazaar (Pazari i Ri), Tanners’ Bridge, Tirana Castle and the Cloud. You will get explanations about each place where we stop, and you can ask as many questions as you would like! Afterwards we will head to Blloku area, where we will see Enver Hoxha’s old villa and the Postbllok monument. At the end we will visit Mother Teresa Square and also have a little stroll through Grand park with an amazing view over the lake. This tour is for everyone who wants to get a first impression of Tirana and learn something about its history while doing some light exercise and meeting other travelers.
As we will be walking the whole tour, there will be no pollution (CO2 or noise pollution) from using vehicles and we will only have a small ecological footprint (GSTC D2.2). Because we set a maximum group size of 20 participants, we have a smaller impact per group and a better communication between every visitor and the guide. Our guides have a broad knowledge of the areas visited and the history, know how to behave appropriately and are trained to pass on the information to our guests (GSTC A9). That’s also because we hire only local guides, which mostly grew up in Tirana or the surroundings (GSTC B2). Furthermore, visitors get the opportunity to see Albanian culture, architecture and history (GSTC C3). We make sure you will see the sights that are mentioned in the description (if nothing unexpected, like storm, injury etc. occurs or the group decides against this). The images we show are real pictures of Tirana and the sights you will visit (GSTC A6).
You will do something for your health as well, but please make sure you are capable of walking for 4 hours, especially in the summer heat.
