The port of Durres
The port of Durres is situated on the coast of central Albania just 33 kilometres from the country's capital Tirana. The city of Durres is the second most populated in the country and has great tourist and cultural potential. It is a strategic point and an important link with Western Europe due to its proximity to the Italian coast, as only 200 km separate the port of Durres with Brindisi and about 300 km from the Italian port of Bari.
In addition to a growing tourism of sun and beach, Durres offers important archaeological treasures and cultural spaces to the traveller. Among the most outstanding are the Roman amphitheatre built in the 2nd century BC, the 6th century fortress, the Aleksandër Moisiu Theatre, the Estrada Theatre, the puppet theatre or the philharmonic orchestra.
Getting to the Port of Durres is easy and comfortable, as you can do it by public transport by bus or taxi, as it is very close to the city. If you are travelling by car from another point, the terminal also has a car park and a tourist information office.
