Tirana (Durres)

Let the history of Durres come alive where gladiators fought at the Roman amphitheater in front of as many as 20,000 spectators, which was erected during the reign of Hadrian in the 2nd century A.D. and only rediscovered in the 1960's. Or delve into Albania's tumultuous past at the National Historical Museum in Tirana, the country's largest museum, where thousands of objects date to the Paleolithic era.
