Members of the first Regent group who travelled to Albania in 1971 would struggle to recognise the country today. Gone are the virtually traffic-free roads, collective farms and churches and mosques converted into sports halls; but the warm Albanian welcome, dramatic scenery, evidence of 400 years of Ottoman occupation and enthralling archaeology, are still the same.

Albania holidays offer the combination of pretty countryside scenes, ancient Roman history and tangible links to the country’s more recent times, with concrete apartment blocks and pillboxes reminding visitors of its time as a Communist nation.

Visitors interested in nature will discover Albania to be a country of wild natural beauty with a rugged and underdeveloped coastline, scenic hillsides clad with olive trees and dark, brooding mountains. Speaking of mountains, the Dinaric Alps and the Pindus Mountains are perfect for hiking.

Those with a penchant for history are drawn to the museum cities of Berat and Gjirokastra, both dominated by towering castles, and can head to Kruja Castle Museum to learn all about the national hero, Skanderbeg. In Butrint, step back in time to discover the 3rd-century B.C. amphitheatre and the ancient city of Apollonia.

Ellie Marr
If you've not visited the Balkans before, Albania is a great all-round destination and the perfect place to start. It's home to mountains and remote villages in the Albanian Alps, Adriatic and Ionian coastlines and pretty UNESCO towns like Berat an Gjirokastra. To top it all off, it's ancient and recent history is fascinating - visit soon, it won't remain under the radar for very long!

Ellie's Tips
For history, explore the cobbled streets, crumbling Ottoman houses and a looming castle in Gjirokastra.
Take the two-hour ferry journey across lake Lake Koman in the north to see little-visited towering limestone cliffs.
To try typical Albanian food, head to rustic Mrizi I Zanave in Fishte, where the owners embrace the Slow Food philosophy.
