Discover an ancient city that stretches over 2500 years with a local guide!


Welcome to the city I was born and raised. Let me take you on a walking tour in Durres, a city that stretches over 2500 years and it was called ''The tavern of the Adriatic'' by Catallus, a Roman poet. On this tour I will show you some of the unique places and still preserved attractions that make this city special. We are also going to visit the archaeological museum which offers an exhibition of the archaeological findings.

Last but not least we are going to visit a church and a mosque where I will explain to you how religion works in Albania.
Our tour finishes at the Volga square where we shall have coffee or ice cream (Durres is famous for ice cream in Albania) while we discuss how nowadays Albanians live in the city.

In case you want me to customize this tour, just ask!
