Albania holidays with Cox & Kings

Albania has a landscape of staggering beauty: rugged mountains, snow-capped for much of the year, tower above white sandy beaches and green mysterious valleys.

Besides incredible scenery, Albania also has a number of superb historical sites. Roman, Ottoman and, for a short period, Italian rule have all left their mark on the land. Ancient burial mounds, amphitheatres, castles and mosques are all to be found here.

Yet this country remained under wraps for much of the 20th century, isolated under Enver Hoxha and his Stalinist state. Over this time the people and the landscape remained cut off from the outside world, until the fall of Communism in 1991. The country is now a delight to explore with its majestic scenery and timeless Albanian culture.
