Got your plane ticket locked in and your luggage ready to go? Read on for a few basic Tirana tips before you jet off.
Tirana is the national capital of Albania. If you want to find it on a map, it's 110 miles (177 kilometers) southwest of Pristina, a significant city.
There are 370,000 locals that call this part of Albania home.
With Travelocity, it's so simple to plan a vacation to Tirana and save money. All you have to do is book a flight and accommodation package. Best of all, with no less than 400 airlines and 665,000 places to stay, it'll be easy to get exactly what you're after.
From airfares and accommodations to car rentals and experiences, you've got the security of 24/7 personal assistance with our Customer 1st Guarantee. If you somehow encounter a cheaper deal on a different website, we'll refund you the difference^.
If you'd like to cancel your travel reservations for any reason at all, there won't be a charge from our end. And so long as you get in quick, many accommodations won't charge you a fee either^.
If you'd like somewhere opulent to base yourself, slide between the silky sheets at the Tirana International Hotel & Conference Centre.
On a budget? Don't worry, you won't be left out in the cold. The Freddy's Hotel will keep both you and your wallet happy.
Say hello to unforgettable adventures in Tirana. Once you've headed out of Rinas International Airport (TIA), the central area will be just 8 miles (13 kilometers) to the southeast.
Take a walk around Tirana and experience its unique culture. If you want to explore a little further afield, securing a rental car via Travelocity is a great choice.
Many tourists pick up a vehicle directly from Rinas International Airport. It's pretty much impossible to pass by without seeing Budget and Sixt. If these options don't suit you, Alamo Rent A Car and Enterprise also have offices here.
Renting a car right from the heart of the city can be convenient if you're staying nearby. Take a look at Hertz, situated at Skenderbeg Square. If there's nothing that suits your needs there, Sixt at Rr. e Kavajes 116 (VW Dealer) is your next best bet.
Take pleasure in the extensive array of artistic creations at National Art Gallery. This established art museum is a fine venue to pass an afternoon.

History may not come to life in school rooms, but the exhibitions at National Museum of History offer an enlightening experience for all.
But that's not all there is.
If you're after someplace to keep the kids busy, you could try Palace of Culture.
If you have checked out the best of Tirana and have more time up your sleeve, don't panic! Just 18 miles (29 kilometers) away is Durres, and you definitely won't be bored here. Durres Amphitheatre is a fantastic place to start understanding the story of the area. Durres Tower and the Amphitheatre of Durrës are also well worth your time. Berat is another neighboring area situated just 45 miles (72 kilometers) away. Travelers come here for Berat Castle, the Ethnographic Museum and the Cobo Winery.
