Durres Amphitheatre, Durres

3.4
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Durres
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.

  • Great bit of history - check out the tunnels! 400Leke to enter though. Wouldn't bother unless really interested in this kind of thing. Better view from the outside
  • I must admit, that I was more than a bit disappointed when I saw this peace of history surrounded by houses in quite "bare bone" state. The city has eaten a jewel.
  • Great place can walk in side the building . See the old cells ect the gate way chariots came in . And for price of entry you get a free ticket to the museum further up the road .
  • Roman amphitheater with potential but nothing is being done to maintain it or making the most out of it.
  • Great history. Nice people
