Durres is Albania's main seaport, lying west of Tirane, on the Adriatic coast. There are some well-preserved Roman arenas which have been excavated in the city's old quarter. Established as Epidamnus by the Greeks in 7th century BC, Durres was seized by the Illyrians and then passed to the Romans. In 4th century AD Durres became capital of the Roman province Epirus Nova, but during its history, it later came under control of Byzantines, Crusaders, Sicilians, Venicians, Serbs, Albanians and Greeks. In 1913 it was declared capital of independent Albania but was overrun by Austrians and later Italians in World War I.
Tirana, capital and biggest city of Albania, can be reached from Durres. It was established in 1614 by Sulejman Pasha and in 1920 became Albania's capital city.
