More About Durres

Durres is one of Albania's oldest cities, the country's main sea port, the second largest industrial center after Tirana.

With miles of coast and its proximity to Tirana, Durrës should be a seaside resort par excellence. In reality it’s dirty and polluted, and you can’t swim without risking skin infections. It’s a sad reminder of how far the country has slipped since the beach resorts were built here in communist times.

The ancient port of Durrës does however merit a short visit. Its location has long been desirable, proved by the fact that in the last 900 years control of the city has changed 33 times. Illyrians first settled here in 627 BC, and Durres became a prosperous trading harbour.

Durres Ferry Port

The main sight is the large Roman amphitheatre (open 08:00 - 16:00; 200 lek), in the centre of town. Built between 117-78 BC, it hosted gladiatorial games watched by up to 20,000 people. Amazingly, it lay forgotten until 1966, and 25% of the amphitheatre still remains buried beneath houses.

 

The Fortress of the City : the remains of the walls belong to the 6th century; the addition from 13-14th century. Wars and earthquakes destroyed the fortress.

The Amphitheatre : with a capacity of 15,000 spectators. Its diameter must have been more than 120 metres. It is one of the biggest and most exquisite monuments that have survived from the ancient city. It was built in the 2nd century A.D.

The Belle of Durres: It is the most polychromatic mosaic found in the country. The mosaic was discovered beneath a dwelling, in a residential quarter of the town. It is elliptical in shape and measures 17 x 10 feet. The mosaic depicts on a block ground g woman's head surrounded by flowers.

Roman Thermal Baths: were discovered on 1962. The baths have a hypocaust or heating system and a pool, 23 feet long by 17 feet wide.

The Archaeological Museum: situated near the sea. It gives a view on the ancient Dyrrachium. There are many objects excavated in Durres and this museum being small can not reveal all of them. There are currently plans to construct and extension to the existing museum.

 

On the west side of the town, on top of a hill, rises a magnificent villa. It used to be the villa of King Zog. Today it is used to receive foreign delegations. The villa, with its striking pink paintwork, overlooks the port of Durres.

More ancient stuff can be viewed at the Archeological Museum (Rr. Taulantia, open 09:00 - 12:00, 17:00 - 19:00, closed Mon). Near the amphitheatre and the harbour stands the last remaining tower of the city's fortifications.

This is now used by the Torre Bar (open 08:30 - 24:00); there's a shady terrace with a good seafood restaurant right beside it, and the Piazza restaurant is just across the street (same times).

In town, the Arvi is the hotel of choice (Rr. Taulantia 1, tel. +355 52 23 04 03/+355 69 22 85 453, arvishpk@msn.com). The beaches the south of Durres are crammed with Tiranans during summer. The best place to stay is in the fantastic 5-star Adriatik Hotel.
