Guess what? Vlorë is also named and spelled Vlore - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

One of the most interesting and attractive cities on Albania’s coast is Vlorë (Vlore), Albania, in the south of the country. While Albania still has a negative image as a tourist destination due to its history and it is almost unheard of when asking people about their favourite Mediterranean destination for a summer holiday -- most will answer the Greek islands, Italy, Spain, or even Croatia -- fortunately, this is slowly changing. Whereas the beaches in the previously mentioned countries are packed in the summer months, the beaches with similar facilities in Albania are relatively empty. Vlorë, Albania, is still unspoilt, just like the rest of the country and the prices are a fraction of what you would pay elsewhere in Southern Europe.

Vlorë is a historical city where Albanian independence was also proclaimed. With nearly three hundred sunny days per year, Vlorë, Albania is also a good destination to work on your Vitamin D level.

Vlorë can best be divided in three areas from a tourist perspective -- the port area, the beaches, and the city centre. The beaches stretch several kilometres to both the east and the west. There are many Vlorë (Vlore), Albania hostels and hotels close to the port and near the beaches, and this is obviously the best area to book your Vlorë (Vlore), Albania hostel if you want to spend most time on the beach. Vlorë’s city centre is about two kilometres north of the port. If you want to spend a lot of time on cultural activities in Vlorë, Albania, you are better off booking a Vlorë (Vlore), Albania hostel in this area. Buses to landmarks just outside Vlorë -- like the castle of Kanina and the monastery of Saint Mary in Zvernec -- also depart near the city centre. The amount of Vlorë (Vlore), Albania hostels may currently still be limited, but the Albanian government is making big investments in the country’s tourism infrastructure, so more hostels in Vlorë (Vlore), Albania, are expected to open soon.
