Know More About Durres:

Blessed with a reasonable 10km stretch of beach, Durrës is pleasant – if rather built up – escape from Tirana and has a charmingly Mediterranean air once you get off the seafront, which can be very crowded, noisy and a bit tacky during the summer months. The town has a long and impressive history, and for international visitors, the main reason for coming to Durrës isn't for the beaches but for the interesting Roman amphitheatre and superb archaeological museum.

What To Do in Durres:
Go for an evening walk along the new beachfront deck and the seafront promenade where you can see locals strolling around or even men with bears on a leash or with snakes entwined around their necks! This is usually only in the summer when loads of tourists come.

Visit Scanderbeg Castle, Ishem Castle and Shen Ndout Church near Lalzit Bay in Cape of Rodon.

Take a tour of the wine-producing region of Gjepalaj and visit the local Kokomani Winery.

Villa Hill (Kodra e Viles), Rruga Currila. Panoramic view of Durre's seaside at Currilat from top of a newly reclaimed hill.

Durres Amphitheatre
Surely one of the greatest pieces of ancient architecture in Albania, if not the Balkans, the Durres Amphitheatre was built in 100AD by Hadrian and was only rediscovered in the 1960s. It was used for about 300 years and back then it could as many as 20,000 spectators. This grand scale is part of what makes the landmark special, but archaeologists are also intrigued by how the building demonstrates the Roman transition to Christianity.

Durres Castle
This monument consists of a single tower and wall and is referred to in many guides as the Venetian Tower. It dates way back to the 400s, during the reign of the Byzantine Emperor Anastasius I who was born in this city.

Durres Beach
Albania’s most popular destination for a day by the sea, Durres Beach stretches out for more than ten kilometres along the city’s waterfront. The urban part of the beach is crazy in the summer when it’s packed with people from all walks of life. There is all manner of things going on, from games of table football to water sports events.
