Durres, being very close to the capital city of Tirana, has become the country's largest holiday resort, with kilometres of newly glistening newly built hotels lining its pristine sandy coastline. It is also the country's oldest city with a rich cultural heritage. The city was founded by Greek settlers in 627 BC and today its most impressive tourist attraction is a Roman amphitheatre dating from the 2nd century BC. The town's rich history means the Museum of archaeology is definitely worth a visit.
Vlore, Albania's fourth-largest city, is also another Albanian town worth visiting. The town lies in the picturesque Gulf of Vlorë and is naturally protected from bad weather. Vlore is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination and the town now boasts a full range of accommodation and entertainments. Very much worth a visit is the magnificent Murad Mosque built between 1542 and 1157. Just make sure you wear respectful clothing if planning a visit.
