Bari to Durres/Dubrovnik
Look on Magbaz website, at their trips and fellow travellers.
They have been across Albania in a v big mh , Don Madge also no doubt.
Can't investigate further as our tablet is playing silly b's but we took a ferry to Vlore, Albania from Italy, on our way to Greece and Turkey in early Jan 2012, and wrote it all up on Magbaz website.
Perfectly OK ferry, a bit old, but bed linen etc clean and so on.
Nice road from Vlore down to Igoumenitsa, they call it the Albanian Riviera, there is a good archeo site near the Greek border, which we failed to see as it was raining cats and dogs. You go over on a tiny ferry, and we parked by the archeo site overnight. Lovely place.
The Albanian language is fairly close to French I think, certainly the signs were much easier to understand than Greek ones.
