#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.

  • You have to feel the age othe brick! Definetly worth to walk around the place among old streets and sip a cup of coffee in shade...  more »
  • The ruins are natural enough lack of recovery work, budget short do ruin a job half finished.

  • Massive historical ruins of a Roman Amphithetre; slowly being upgraded and protected by the city of Durres. Probably the best ruins outside of Rome !
  • Was great to explore but it's not well looked after, there was a lot of litter and stray dogs I the amphitheater. We were unsure of where we could walk and didn't know anything about what we were looking at because there was no signage or maps. Cheap enough to visit and the kids loved exploring but really disappointing.
  • It is very interesing to visit Amfiteatrin e Durrsit.
  • 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
  • It has a magic ambience in the night.
