“The scene was savage, but the scene was new; this made the ceaseless toil of travel sweet” Lord Byron

Think of Albania as a beautiful sonnet, that begins with a traveller’s questioning the unknown that awaits before him, upon setting foot in one of Europe’s smallest countries and ends with his amazement of finding a divine harmony between the wilderness of the mountains and the peaceful view of a crystal blue coastline, between a history as ancient as the continent itself and a thriving new population embracing the modern, between roman ruins and beautiful contemporary architecture.

Albania’s location in the south-eastern part of Europe favours a Mediterranean mild climate of 300 sunny days, which allows for a joyful exploration of the country and its neighbouring Greece, Montenegro and Italy (separated by sea).

Its natural wild beauty, its unique history, the rich culinary tradition and the generosity and vitality of its people, make Albania an unforgettable experience and for many, a never-ending love story. Tourists and international media who have had a chance to visit, praise Albania as the hidden gem of Europe, a land of treasures, including 4 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, one of the most ancient lakes in the world, 45% of Europe’s fauna, beautiful valleys, canyons and caves and magnificent Riviera of golden and white beaches lapped by turquoise waters of Adriatic and Ionian Sea.

Today, Albania’s image as a tourism destination, in markets such as the UK, USA, Germany, Italy, Benelux and Northern Europe, is highly reputable and associated with affordable exclusivity, intriguing food, cultural experiences, undiscovered wild life and UNESCO World Heritage sites. Over the past six years, Albania recorded an increase of 56% in the number of visitors. According to the Government estimations, this number is expected to increase up to 10,000,000 tourists over the next five years:

Albania has a low cost of living compared to most of Europe. Albania has lower prices on property purchase even compared to the neighboring countries: 56% lower than Greece, 50% lower than Montenegro, 60% lower than Croatia and 75% lower than Italy. Property prices have increased gradually approximately by 20 per cent for the past five years, and are expected to increase further
