Berat is a city in Albania. It has got some beautiful traditional architecture and due to its geographical position (far from the coastline) is not packed with tourists. Locals are really nice and like foreign visitors. As most of Albanian cities it is good for hitchhiking.
It is an easy catch and recommended over straightly going to Fier, as the road to Lushnjë is in better quality and more frequently used. Head north from the city centre to avoid local drivers and taxis. The best place to stand is after the connection of the two roads, which are SH72 and Rruga Antipatrea.
