It was discovered near the city center by a farmer who was plowing his fields. The port of Durres was part of The Egnatian Way, a vital trade route that connected Rome with Byzantium, and is likely the reason that a Roman amphitheater was built here. Known locally as Durrësi, this largest port city in Albania is also known for its beaches and fresh seafood.
