Situated on a small peninsula on the beautiful coast of the Adriatic Sea, and benefitting from shallow, sandy beaches, gloriously clear and inviting blue waters and a hot Mediterranean climate, Durrës is one of Albania's most popular holiday destinations. A wonderful place to live, as well as visit, the city has been inhabited almost 3000 years, is rich in centuries of fascinating history, and captivates with its local culture.
An ancient city, the former Albanian capital is packed with an abundance of interesting places to explore, discover and visit, particularly within its historic heart. The city centre is full of interesting places to visit, including the Ancient City Wall, the Byzantine forum, the Archaeological museum, the Venetian tower, the Monument of Resistance and the Ethnographic museum. Each site has its own deep history, incredible architecture and cultural importance.
