Plan Your Tirana Holiday

There are many reasons to travel to Tirana. The city is set in a stunning natural landscape and has a rich cultural heritage with many ballet, theatre and opera shows spread throughout the whole of the peak summer tourist season. The city is emerging as a prime tourist destination and has been dubbed the ‘city of kiosks’ with a burgeoning array of choices in entertainment, shopping and excursions.

The summer peak season in Tirana runs from May to September with the high season covering July and August. Temperatures range from 24 to 32 degrees Celsius. The city can get crowded and particularly hot in high season. We recommend that you book your tickets to Tirana early to travel in the summer, and this is especially true for the Summer Day Festival period. The off-peak period from October to April is cooler and this is the time to find cheap hotels in Tirana. We suggest that you visit our Deals section to find flight deals to Tirana throughout the year.
