Amazing masks there. I love the one I bought there when I went on holidays to Albania. Great selection of lovely hand-made Venetian masks. And they care so much about the quality of their work that if the mask has a bit of damage from being on display, they won’t sell it to you. They will only sell it if it’s in perfect conditions. That’s how much they care.

I had some wonderful days hiking both in Theth and Valbona Valleys. Beautiful landscape, amazing mountains and woods - and the unforgetable nights filled with fireflies. And I mean filled... after sunset this most beautiful show would start, everywhere you looked you had dozens of small lights afloat in the air. The food was also great, some of the best yogurt and vegetables I ever had, and the people really nice.

When we first arrived in Albania we weren't expecting to stay for as long as we did. We initially rented a car for two weeks, then ended up extending the lease a couple more times for two months total. The car was in excellent condition and was very comfortable. We went everywhere with this car with no issues at all! =D Bledi, the owner, was super easy to work with every time, courteous, responsive, and very professional. He and the staff were so nice that they even offered to take us to the airport at no extra charge. We highly recommend this car rental company to everyone visiting Albania. You won't be disappointed!

Mesi Bridge

Reviewed By WITYTRAVELS

When we were doing research we saw some people could walk under the middle arch and that the ground below the bridge was dry. Thankfully when we went the river was flowing. The water was blue and clear; like the water in the Mexico. This was surprising because most of the water we saw in the rivers around Tirana were much darker. Our guess as to why it dries out sometimes is because the river is created from melting snow from the Albanian Alps. Others may have visited in the Summer when there is no ice or snow to melt and create the river. We visited in Mid February and the mountains at the time definitely were covered in snow. This is such a great location, we even saw a couple taking their post-ceremony wedding pictures out here. It gave us even more entertainment as we ate our packed lunch and looked out over the ancient bridge and snow-capped mountains. When we were done experiencing the area we headed back to Shkodër. We did not reach the daily threshold on our bike rental (we only had the bikes about 3.5 hours) so the shop owner gave us the hourly price and returned our license with no problems.

Shkodra Lake

Reviewed By WITYTRAVELS

You can't get a proper view of Lake Shkodër from the city, so it is best to make your way out of town to Shiroka / Shirokë. Lake Shkodër is not only the largest lake in the Balkans, it is the largest lake in all of Southern Europe. The lake is on the border between Albania and Montenegro. This route is better by bike and best by car, but we decided to visit on foot. Since we also visited Rozafa castle in the same day, we figured we would not be able to use the bikes there, so we could just get all of our steps in for the day. I think walking all the way from Shkodër to Shirokë and walking around Rozafa Castle added up to 11 miles on foot for the day. The walk from the Castle to Shiroka was long but really nice. The goal was to get to a large opening of the lake, but the entire route was along the water. The Buna River flows into Lake Shkodër so you will walk along water the entire time. There is a large sidewalk to keep you safe and off of the street and there is plenty of room for pedestrians and for bikes.
