good views

Entrance fee is 200 lek so not expensive. 90 steps later you have good views of the city. Built in 19th century. Well maintains.

My friends and I visited in August and this was definitely worthwhile. It's free to walk up and it's not particularly challenging. The views of the main square are pretty decent. I would advise go up in the morning so the sun isn't in your eyes when you look at the square.

Great Views of Tirana when you climb the narrow steps of the tower. Good view of Ethem Bey Mosque but especially of Skenderbeg Square. Very inexpensive and though it'll leave you a bit out of breath, it's not too taxing.

The clock tower, is clearly a symbol of Tirana, but it's nothing tremendous... Based just next to the mosque it's just a plus for the mosque, but nothing great on its own.

Ninety-three steps to the top and it costs nothing (like many other similar attractions in Albania).

A must see while exploring central Tirana. An easy climb to the top affords a great view of the square and environs.

The clock tower is situated next to the Et'hem bey mosque, just east from the Skanderberg Square. The clock tower is free of access and you´ll get a great 360° view from the city on top. The tower is not so big, so it´s farely easy accesible if you´re fit or aren´t afraid of heights.

At the time we visited the tower, the access was free. A few steps to the top (no elevator). Good views. Simple but nice.

It's not very high so the climb isn't challenging, The view from the top over Skanderbeg Square is very nice although the platform is very narrow so tricky to navigate if there are more than a few people up there. And it was free, so what is not to like?

Thank jjknyc
