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.

I had the pleasure of touring the amphitheatre with an archaeologist who added a wealth of information to what I already knew of the site. more »
To see the amphitheatre was lovely however it is currently closed off meaning you can only view from the walkway, the access is a little difficult as the pavements are not complete. However wonderful to see this site being restored and protected.
It's nothing that "special". Sure it is a historic place but is nothing special. The place is beautiful for pictures.
