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.

  • Absolutely worth going at least once in your life. Walking through the galleries and stopping to take it all in, knowing you are standing on the stairs where gladiators prepared before going on the arena to fight for their lives. The center of the amphitheatre has not been escavated because it was used as burial grounds, which is still fascinating to know. There is still much to be discovered, the current galleries would not take particularly long to explore either. Bring a bright flashlight as there are a couple of galleries that are longer and very dark.
  • It's nothing that "special". Sure it is a historic place but is nothing special. The place is beautiful for photografies.
