Visit the ancient city of Butrint

Until it was described in the worst possible light in the 2008 Liam Neeson movie Taken, Albania was little known outside of the Balkans. Travelers had certainly not been crowding the place since the brutal Communist dictatorship of Enver Hoxha that started in 1941 had firmly sealed the nation’s borders. It was only in 1991 that the country deemed the most isolated in the world at the time got rid of communism, held its first democratic election, and started to slowly open up to the rest of th...

Venice's worst flood in 50 years blamed on climate change

Venice is inundated with floodwaters, with more than 85 percent of the city, including its historic basilica and centuries-old buildings, experiencing floods.

The best things to do in Albania

Although Albania emerged from Communist rule in December 1990, its process of opening up to the world has been slow, and it has been overlooked by even the most adventurous backpackers.

It has stunning, near-empty beaches; ethereal mountains; a rich history. and budget-friendly prices. It’s hard not to be drawn in by this mysterious nation, the homeland of Mother...
