The Hotel Tafaj was basic but with the restaurant, I felt I had a genuine experience of Albania, that I would not have had at a more upmarket hotel.

Joanne Wheeler Albania may not be known for its cuisine, but we can recommend the Sarajet restaurant in Tirana, not only for the venue but for the food. Housed in a characterful family home, the food served here keeps Albanians and foreign visitors alike coming back for more. Make sure you book, especially if you want to dine on the charming open-air terrace.

Tirana Holidays

Tirana is the perfect choice for a city break with a difference! Once a bustling Ottoman settlement, then a drab communist backwater, today Tirana bustles with vitality once more. Chic boutiques, family-run eateries, Turkish bazaars, well-stocked galleries and freshly restored mosques vie for the visitor’s attention.

One of Europe's last forgotten cities, little-known Tirana has undergone a renaissance. Blissfully overlooked by mass tourism, the vibrant Albanians are transforming their tiny capital with vision and energy. Once a bustling Ottoman settlement, then a drab communist backwater, today Tirana hums with vitality once more.

Regent Recommends

TiranaVisiting the newly restored Tanners' Bridge. This elegant Ottoman stone footbridge was once used by farmers in the highlands of east to bring their livestock and agricultural products to market in Tirana.

Overlooking the bridge, beneath some fragrant fig trees there is a small café, where you can sip a raki and enjoy the view.

On a Tirana holiday your preconceptions are defied at every turn. Pavement cafés, chic boutiques, family-run eateries, Turkish bazaars, well-stocked galleries and freshly restored mosques vie for the visitor's attention.

Tirana's smart new hotels are infused with the Muslim tradition of hospitality, guaranteeing a warm reception. Long Mediterranean summers mean lazy, heat-hazed evenings spent sipping local wine and grazing on juicy olives.
