This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.
There are buses from most neighbouring countries to Tirana, or you can drive (check that insurance covers Albania). There are no trains. Flight options to Albania include:
- Star Alliance - Adria, Austrian, Lufthansa, Turkish
- Oneworld - British Airways, Malev
- Sky Team - Alitalia
- Other selected - Albanian
TIP there is not much competition for flights to Albania, other than from Rome & Milan
TIP if driving or taking a bus allow plenty of time - roads are not generally as good as in other Balkan countries
Here is a link to a post about my visit to Albania earlier this year.
