Taste traditional Albanian food in DurrësWelcome to the tour that combines Durrësi's history, architecture, and traditional Albanian food. Firstly, we recommend that participants do not go overboard with their breakfasts at the hotel, in order to be immediately ready to taste the Albanian food recipes and specialties that we will offer you.The tour starts at Sports Palace ''Ramazan Njala'' at 09:00 am, from there we'll make a visit to the farmer's market. There we'll get to see the local fruits, vegetables, and local foods, consisting of Mediterranean products. Then the next stop is at a ''Byrek'' shop, where you'll have the chance to taste the traditional Albanian Byrek. It is a salted pie, usually filled with cottage cheese or meat. If you want to experience eating Byrek like an Albanian, you must try it accompanied by a yogurt-based drink called ''dhallë''. Walking on the main boulevard of the city, we'll get to see the Italian architecture of the years and the numerous shops and bars that opened after the communism period. After this walk, take your time to relax at a bar with traditional Turkish Coffee. In Albania, we love to spend coffee time with friends, it's a time that we can have talks, laughs and of course some ''gossip''. Relaxed from the coffee break, we'll visit the Roman Amphitheater, built by the Trajan Emperor at the beginning of the II century AC. The amphitheater was built to accommodate a capacity of 20,000 people, and it is the biggest in the Balkan area.
