Description

Join this unforgettable journey to explore the enchanting attractions of Shkodra and Lezha, two of Albania's most historic cities. The tour guide will pick you up from your accommodation located in Tirana to kickstart the adventure. The first destination is the charming city of Lezha. Dive into its rich history and pay homage to Albania's national hero, Gjergj Kastriot Skanderbeg, at his revered tomb. After that, we will visit the center of Lezha city. Then, we'll venture to the iconic Rozafa Castle, perched majestically just 3km south of Shkodra's bustling center. This ancient fortress boasts a captivating past dating back to the early Bronze Age, revealed through fascinating archaeological finds. Step inside the castle's walls to uncover architectural marvels and remnants of Venetian administrative buildings. From the castle's vantage points, soak in panoramic views of the picturesque landscape, adorned by the Buna and Drin Rivers. Our journey continues to the breathtaking Shkodra Lake, straddling the border between Montenegro and Albania. Once a bay of the Adriatic Sea, this expansive lake stands as the largest in the Balkans, spanning over 41km in length and teeming with diverse birdlife, including the majestic pelicans. Free time for lunch, with the possibility to enjoy the panoramic lake view. Conclude our tour with a visit to Shkodra's vibrant main boulevard, immersing yourself in the city's dynamic fusion of history, culture, and modernity. Also visit the awe-inspiring Catholic Cathedral, dedicated to St. Stephen and hailed as one of the Balkans' largest. Back to Tirana at your hotel.
