Hello. Leaving for Tirana next week and picking up a car at the airport for 11 days before returning car back to Tirana airport. I’ve been doing research for this last minute trip.
I read that google maps is not very reliable in Albania and assume this is still true for some stretches. Can I buy a paper map at the Tirana airport?
One website suggested a drive from Sarandë to The Blue Eye, then Muzina, Jorgucat village, and finally Gjirokastra. Google maps does not provide a direct road from The Blue eye to Muzina Pass. Is this correct? Perhaps it’s only for bikers this driving route suggested by this website. https:/…
Any other tips will be appreciated. We may skip Tirana the capital entirely given our short time to explore Albania. I am hoping that after driving south of Tirana airport I may have time to go north of airport to Lezhe where I read there’s a Michelin starred chef restaurant.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
