Albania (Bradt Travel Guides)
Lonely Planet Mediterranean Europe (Travel Guide)
Albania’s unspoilt mountain scenery, cultural sites and beaches mean it is becoming increasingly popular with a growing number of curious travellers. This affectionate guide to Albania covers the length and breadth of the country, discovering remote villages and out-of-the-way towns such as Peshkopia and Erseka. Visitors will find detailed information on wildlife, national parks, hiking routes, and beaches and the latest updates in a country where changes happen every 5 minutes. For those interested in the culture and history, there is more on the main archaeological sites at Butrint and Byllis and Byzantine art, together with biographical vignettes of individuals who have figured in the country’s history.
Not really a travel guide for just Albania – but it also features Albania. I would recommend this guide if you are making a mediterranean trip to multiple countries.
