Destination: Drač, Albania

Drac or Durres is the second largest city of Albania and is central on the coast, about 33 km west of the capital Tirana. It is one of the most ancient and economically significant cities of Albania.

Durrës is at one of the narrower points of the Adriatic Sea, opposite the Italian ports of Bari (300 km or 186 mi away) and Brindisi(200 km or 124 mi away). Durrës is home to Albania's main port, the Port of Durrës, and to the newest public university, the Aleksandër Moisiu University. The population at the 2011 census was 113,249. The metropolitan area has a population of 265,330. Founded in the 7th century BC by Greek colonists from Corinth and Corcyra under the name Epidamnos, it has been continuously inhabited for 2,700 years and is one of the oldest cities in Albania. Durrës served as Albania's national capital from 7 March 1914 until 11 February 1920 during the reign of William of Albania in Principality of Albania.

“Traveling with a group is never an easy task, but Velvet Life made it very enjoyable and stressless."
“Traveling with a group is never an easy task, but Velvet Life made it very enjoyable and stressless. We loved Bosnia and all the nature it possesses. The part that made our trip even more relaxed is the fact we had a very luxurious van to travel with and a driver that was available to us 24/7. We are looking forward to come back to Bosnia with Velvet Life.”
