As soon as September arrives and the weather gets fresher, Tirana becomes the best place to live and if you can’t live here, at least to visit. It can rain sometimes and it will feel like there’s no tomorrow, but guess what. The next day it will feel like it was all a bad dream and the sun will shine like never before. The rushing mornings at the corner coffeeshops, the sunny busy noons and the noisy evenings all around the city are just a notice that everyone is back home for another fresh start.
And if you don’t usually get busy at all, here’s some activities you can do in Tirana on Autumn 2022:
Enjoy a fresh hike to Mount Dajti
The beginning of Autumn will still grand you a green forest panorama, but you can take advantage of the fresh weather to hike for hours to Mount Dajti, take the cable car for a special view, enjoy a picnic at your favourite spot or have lunch at one of the restaurants at the top of the mountain. While by the mont of November, you will get to see the colours change, the leaves fall and the views get spectacular.
