Land of the Eagles
With its young bustling metropolis, networks of cobblestone pedestrianized streets, coastal beach towns, and cities of ancient ruins, Albania will continuously surprise you. As you reach each new major town and discover how completely different it is from the last, your appreciation will deepen for this tucked-away land steeped in history. Travel, eating, and accommodation here is very inexpensive, freeing you from budget concerns and allowing you to travel in the style that you want. Meanwhile, you may find yourself going days without spotting another tourist. While this means that many things will not be customized for visitors (non-English menus, sparse accommodation, and fewer international transportation options), you'll experience the feel of authentic Albania.

Meanwhile, those with an archaeological interest will find many castles and ruins here to be explored, particularly the stunning remains of the ancient city Butrint. The ruins are part of a national park by the same name, which surrounds this World Heritage Site with lush greenery. Being able to combine both a relaxing beach vacation with an experience of historical Albanian relics makes Vlore County one of the country's most popular tourist spots.
