Durres is the oldest city in Albania. Flourished during the Roman and Byzantine ages, the Roman Amphitheater was the largest in the Balkan Peninsula. Its rich past is well represented by the Archaeological Museum with an excellent collection of artifacts Illyrians, Greeks and Romans.
In summer the beaches are very crowded, but off-season, in late spring and early fall the water is still quite warm and the evenings are cool. The coast is lined with a bustling promenade that runs parallel to the street Taulantia and ends with a small beach.
In restaurants, fine meats, fresh fish, excellent beer. If a meal costs more than 30,000 head Lek (25 euro) then the place is too expensive!
Durres is the place to have fun!
