Durres Things to Do: 38 reviews and 97 photos
An amazingly in-tact Roman coliseum exists in Durres, Albania - 30 KM west of Tirana, situated on Albania's Adriatic cost. The coliseum contains an expansive network of tunnels where gladiators and lions alike were confined prior to their battles. If walls could speak ... The 2nd century coliseum sat 30,000 people in its hayday and one can feel what it must have been like to have been an ill-fated gladiator two thousand years ago.
There is no admission fee into the coliseum and, in fact, the coliseum is not a formal attraction. One simply walks into the coliseum ruins and walks out. No postcards, no t-shirts, just a great experience!
Take a furrgon (shared minibus) from Tirana to visit Durres. They leave regularly (when full) and the cost is minimal (200 lek).
