Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • One of the few monuments in Durres. For some, worth the effort for the other but being by the way you cannot miss it:)

  • Undoubtedly one of the few historic attractions in Durres but in my opinion, and not very well exposed.

  • A great monument. would, but closed around the houses of the natives, excavated only part. Probably no idea what to do with it. However, you may want to see.

  • 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.
  • Great historic place, one of the biggest build by Roman empire !
  • It's beautiful historical center
