Albania, situated in south-eastern Europe's Balkan Peninsula, is bordered by Greece, Montenegro, Kosovo and Macedonia. Its shores are bathed by the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, and its location in the heart of the Mediterranean, about 70 km away from Italy, makes Albania an almost uniquely convenient gateway to many different destinations throughout the region. Albania is a land of fascinating Ottoman cities, magnificent mountain scenery, pristine beaches, Mediaeval castles and churches, quaint villages and friendly people - a unique mixture that's relatively unspoilt by modern development.
