Durrës is the second-largest city in Albania and one of the country's oldest cities, founded in the seventh century BCE. Moreover, located on the Adriatic Sea, it has been a trading hub for over two millennia. Once home to a large Roman settlement called Dyrrachium, archaeological sites from this settlement feature prominently throughout the city. Undoubtedly, the amphitheatre which is the largest of its kind in the Balkans, sits in the center of town, and is currently under consideration to be named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As a matter of fact, not only beaches but also historic monuments and a lively atmosphere are the reasons why Durrës is such a popular tourist destination for all levels.
