Best time to visit Albania

Albania has hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters. In the summer the Albanian coastline benefits from moderate sea breezes, making for a very pleasant climate. In the winter the central mountains can become very cold, particularly at night.

The best time to visit Albania is either side of the summer peak when it is warm, sunny and not too crowded with tourists.
