Essential Information

Airport

Nend Tereza (Mother Theresa) airport, also known as Rinas Airport or International Tirana Airport, lies 26 km northwest of the city in the town of Rinasi. Between 6 am and 6 pm there is a bus from the airport to the national Museum in the city centre of Tirana. It leaves every hour and a single ticket costs 250 Leke. A taxi from the airport to the city centre takes about 20-25 minutes and the cost should be around 2,500 Leke. Be certain to fix a price before you get into the taxi.

Public Transport

The heart of the city is not too big to explore by foot, but if your feet are sore and you are tired there are a number of intra-city bus lines both going round the city and to and from the shopping centres. The tickets are cheap but keep in mind that the buses don't go fast. For longer bus journeys there are shared buses/mini-vans called "furgons" that depart for a destination once they are filled with passengers. Because of the ongoing construction in Tirana the bus and furgon depots change regularly, so it is very important to check the locations with your hotel.
