Stop At: Durres Amphitheatre, Rruga Kalase, Durres Albania

The amphitheatre was built in the beginning of the 2nd century AD. It was used for performances until the 4th century AD. The earthquake of 345/346 likely damaged the monument and closed the 'ludii gladiatorii'. An early Christian chapel was constructed on the amphitheatre in the second half of the 4th century. The chapel was initially decorated with frescoes; in the 6th century, mosaics were added. A medieval chapel was built in the 13th century, also decorated with frescoes. The amphitheater was covered over in the 16th century, after the Ottoman occupation, when the wall was built nearby. Marin Barleti described the monument as 'well constructed'.

About one third of the site was discovered and excavated in the 1960s by Vangjel Toci; the rest was excavated in the 1980s by Lida Miraj. After excavation the amphitheater slowly deteriorated, as no conservation efforts were undertaken prior to the 2000s, and construction continued to take place around the site. In 2004 the University of Parma started restoration work to save the monument

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Durres Castle, Durres Albania

The Venetian Castle is an extension of the Byzantine Fortress of Durrës. Built in the sixth century, it was considered as one of the most powerful fortresses along the western coast of the Adriatic. Architectonic elements of the structure and historic records show that the fortress was rebuild in the first half of the fifteenth century, when Durrës was ruled by the Republic of Venice.

In the middle Ages, the design of the fortress was constantly dictated by the advances in the art of fortifications, assault tactics and weaponry of the time. Hence, by the time that artillery was widely used in fortresses, the Venetian Castle was built to do just that.

The tower is built upon a circular plane 9 meters in diameter and 9.6 meters tall. It rises above a cone – shaped basement and bounded in its highest section by a semi – arched stone frame. The basement is filled with earth mound paved in stone slabs, thus making it the only floor in the tower that serves as a defensive podium circled by a serrated banquette.

There is just one hall inside the tower and it is lit by five artillery pill – boxes. It is covered by a spherical dome built with bricks.

The walls measure 3.70 meters thick reinforced by a wooden sash. Because the walls were so thick, it was possible to build a cylindrical stair up to the roof and numerous small slots used as ammunition depot.
