We really enjoyed the tour with Eri who was fun, very informative and gave us good tips about Tirana. Eri speaks perfect English but said a lot so that I wish he had spoken more slowly at Times to remember everything he said. Thanks a million , Eri !

Highlights of a Free Tour in Tirana

A Free Tour in Tirana will take you through notable landmarks and monuments to Tirana’s past, such as Skanderbeg Square, the Clock Tower, Et’hem Bey Mosque, and the Resurrection of Christ Orthodox Cathedral. You’ll also visit the Memorial to Communism Isolation, commemorating the political prisoners who suffered under the brutal Hoxha regime. A visit to the Piramida (Pyramid) is a must. Originally intended as a mausoleum for the communist dictator for many Albanians, it is now a landmark symbolizing the darkest moments of the communist past. Wander around the leafy Blloku neighborhood, formerly sealed off for communist elites but now full of bars and restaurants. For a deeper understanding of Albanian history, visit the following museums: National Historic Museum, The Women’s Museum, BunkArt, and the House of Leaves.

Things to Do in Tirana

Spend a day or two sightseeing with Tirana Free Walking Tours and then head to the museums. The House of Leaves is an intriguing place; a former communist security office where you can learn about the dictatorial regime darkest sides. The BunkArt 1 and 2 are also fascinating museums, exploring the paranoia of the Enver Hoxha regime. After a morning visiting museums, head to the Blloku district for restaurants and bars. When you are in Tirana, make sure you participate in the daily coffee ritual, traditionally known as kafe turke, or Turkish coffee. Tirana is surrounded by forested mountains. For a day trip out of the city, take the Djati Express cable car, which takes you 800 meters up the Djati mountainside. At the top, you can explore the stunning Djati Mountain National Park.
