Albania - Tirana and Korce with Mom

Jump to last reply

I am beginning to plan a trip for this coming June to Tirana and Korce with my 75 year old mother. She is a US citizen of Albanian parents, both from Korce, and has longed to visit her parents homeland for years. This June we will do it!
I am interested in your thoughts about hotels in either or both cities that would be comfortable for Mom (I am considering the Diplomat in Tirana and the Regency in Korce).
Also, getting to Korce. What aer your thoughts? I have read that the bus trip is 3-4 hours. Would a rented car or a private driver make better sense and be quicker? I lived in Macedonia for a while on '06 and rented cars often, but don't know if the driving is as safe in Albania as it is in Macedonia.
Any thoughts or ideas or recommendations will be most appreciated. Thanks and Happy New Year.
Beth
