What To Pack?

Comfortable walking shoes - Roads and pavements can be rough here, so leave the high heels at home.

Toiletries - You won't find familiar brands in Albania, so if you're particular about your toiletries then be sure to bring your own.

Sun block and sunglasses - Tirana weather is hot and sunny in summer, so rock the shades, and don't forget the sunscreen!

An adapter plug and transformer - Albania uses 220V, so you'll need a step-down transformer to run appliances that take 110V. Also, don’t forget your 2-pin European adapter.

Bug spray - Mosquitoes in Albania? Oh, but of course. The south of the country is a perennially popular stomping ground for this most tedious and bothersome of insects.
