Durres Amphitheatre, Durres

(280+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.

  • Wonderful, sensitive restoration by local standards. Easy to explore all that's left, the structure is being further uncovered through the demolition of some of the houses that have been built onto the site over the years; archaeological excavation appears to be still underway at one edge of the analytical stadium. 400 lek to get in.
  • It was nice but small. And a bit neglected. But if you are in the neighbourhood that you must go.
  • Beautiful but neglected place. Bad access. Without the information boards. In Albania, the overall bad attitude to the sights. But as a historical site unforgettable.
  • Nice, but in awfull condition
  • A great historical place: huge amphitheatre built by the Roman in the 2nd Century AD, forgotten and rediscovered in 1966. A must.
