Durres the city with a history of over 2500 years
I will take you on a 4 hour walking tour of the downtown core of Durres. This will help orient you and show you some of the unique places and sites of the city. The city has a rich history that stretches over 2500 years and still preserves some fascinating attractions to visit.
Within the downtown area we will visit the archeological museum, where I will give you a thorough overview of the history of the city and from there we shall walk to the ruins of the Roman amphitheater, Roman forum, Byzantine fortifications and the center of the new town.
After these visits we shall stop at one of the viewpoints of the city, overlooking the entire bay and port of Durres where we shall have some coffee, refreshments or Italian style gelato, while we discuss the economical, social and cultural life of the city.
Towards the end of the tour we shall visit some more landmarks, the promenade, Venetian Tower, Bank of Albania and Orthodox church. (The Bank of Albania can only be seen from the outside)
