About Durrës

Durrës has long been a favourite seaside resort for Albanian families. Embark on one of our cruises to Durrës and beyond the beach you'll find a fascinating city of antiquities, museums and theatres. Founded in the 7th century BC, the port became an important merchant centre on the route linking Rome with Byzantium.

With Durrës cruises you can explore ruins dating back to Roman times including the amphitheatre, one of the largest in the Balkans seating up to 20,000 spectators; an early Christian chapel with rare wall mosaics. The remains of its fortress date back to the early Middle Ages with the archaeological museum exhibiting further reminders of the past. The city, which is also home to King Zog's palace, remains an important seaport connecting travellers to Western Europe via ferry routes to Italy.
