It's a shame that you can't actually go inside and tour around the former residence of Enver Hoxha, but it's certainly worth taking a look from the outside when you are in Tirana, to see where the notorious dictator lived with his family. It's a surprisingly humble villa for a man with such power, and nowhere near as lavish as you might expect. It's quite a chilling place, however, and my guide told me that during the communist days, people would keep far away, and the entire neighbourhood was completely off limits for your regular citizen.

Usually not opened to the public this villa represents a vile place to most Albanians. Known as the Dictator's Villa, it was here where the communist leader of Albania lived from his time of coming to power till his death in 1985. Inside the house everything has been kept as it was, but the place remains closed to visitors unless there is like an exhibition inside it.
