Durres is a city where ancient and modern coexistOn the one hand, archaeological sites of great value such as: the Roman amphitheaterthe Venetian towerthe remains of the imposing wallsthe Byzantine forumetc; on the other, about six kilometers of coastline with bars; restaurants; equipped beaches; accommodation facilities and all the other services normally found in a seaside town. 

This mix, sometimes successful, other times a little less due to excessive building pressure, is immediately visible at the exit from the port. As already mentioned, in fact, the historic center of Durres is not far from the city portThe same goes for the extended promenade.
