Good tour areal51, when I travel I like to stay in more places when passing so much wealth of all kinds in different places, but hey, it is a road tour alright. Hope you had a good experience.

Mount Olympus is very impressive.

...anyway, Vlore-Sarande is more beautiful like any other road.
We went on the road to the coast due to snupix and I don't regret this. This way will be paved completly in 1-2 years and will be one of the most scenic roads, better like the roads on the coast of Croatia and Muntenegru because it is more wild, less crowded and just passing only 4-5 localities


soon: Greece
Some more photos from the section Vlore -Sarande ... i would like to note that the whole saction now has been reconstructed ... i am saying this because of the photos that have been posted be4 and are presenting the road in a bad condition ( which actually it was , but now has been reconstructed ) .. It is the same section that both guys passed and posted the photos in here ( snupix and areal 51 , which btw are doing a great job)

photos taken by edi , and some of them are posted in the albanian thread

Yeah, you can't really say that the 'barrier' in the quoted pic is that safe

So we should only praise how everything is beautiful and fine. You´ve got your compliment scenic, beautiful etc. but the road is high in the mountains and looks unsafe.

EDIT - stop it. Chris

it is not narrow its width is 11 meters ... ! At least the new segment which is the 70 % of the route from vlora to sarande ... !

Snoopix or areal 51 can confirm that ... !

Is this too narrow or unsafe ?

It's perfect for mountain top infrastructure. What do you expect? Carve the whole mountain and make a motorway?


The only thing they should add is side barriers. That's the only thing missing.

I chose that picture, because it's the most beautiful one IMO. I don't find the other road sections scary.

That picture is even scarier, because it was taken sideways.
