Durres Amphitheatre, Durres

3.4
#2 of 8 in Things to do in Durres County
Stop by one of the largest Roman amphitheaters in the Balkans at Durres Amphitheatre. The amphitheater is located in the center of the city, which makes it easily accessible during a city walking tour. The site was built during Emperor Trajan's rule and its well-preserved remains, including a chapel mosaic, are open to the public along with a museum. The mosaic is located inside alcoves, but some of these are under structural risk due to the development on top of the amphitheater, so use caution when you are touring the area. There is a small fee for entering and remember to ask the reception desk for information in English.

    No doubt that despite having little to see fruit of time is an important milestone in the history of Durres and in General of a bygone era. Perhaps the only monument of importance in the city

    It was a bit of a disappointment ... Purchase your ticket at the Museum ... Then 2.5 euros for two entries in two different sites. But the amphitheatre is not required at all well, should treat the cleaning, enhance it with some restoration to make events and maybe put it at the disposal of the guide or audio guide

    Be in Durres and not see the largest amphitheatre of ancient times in the Balkans-a sin. To view the amphitheatre, you don't need to buy a ticket all you'll see from the outside. Amfeatr is pressed between the private houses-what does a great impression.

    It looks much better in pictures than in real life. Expect to pay around 4 euros to enter it. Go watch it if you have nothing else to do or you extremelly into archeology.

    Very small. They did their best to maintain it. It's covered in grass and surrounded by houses

    Resemblance of Colosseum in Rome without all the barriers and hordes of people.
