What people are saying about Krujë

This tour was really amazing. We started in Krujë, strolled through the old street market and then went to the castle. After lunch, which was excellent, by the way, we went to Durrës. We had a cappuccino by the sea and went out to the beach. There we visit the walls that surround the city, the Roman amphitheater and the Venetian tower. Then we went to the viewpoint where you can see the whole city and that indescribable blue sea. We returned to Tirana in the late afternoon, not wanting the day to end.
