About Visit Tirana
Visit Tirana is the tourism platform of Tirana, the best information portal for tourists and locals who want to visit and know better the capital of Albania. Visit Tirana started as a voluntary work to promote our city. Since 2013 we opened a Twitter and Facebook account to promote everything from Tirana. It soon became the strongest voice to post news about Tirana in English and to inform tourists what to find and what to do in our city.
Visit Tirana is today a unique tourism portal of Visit Tirana following best European models for city promotion, a public-private-partnership as Visit Copenhagen, Visit Basel, Visit Hamburg.
Visit Tirana now is not just our main project, but the biggest platform of tourism in Tirana. We suggest travelers where to go, where to stay, and what to eat. In this way this platform is offering businesses a possibility to be visible to foreign visitors. It seems a win and win situation for travelers, tourism businesses in Tirana and our team.
Visit Tirana is the most lovely brand for young people who love photography.
