Durres is the main seaport of Albania, lying on the Adriatic coast, west of Tirane. There are several well-preserved Roman arenas that have been excavated in the old quarter of the city. Founded as Epidamnus by Greeks in the 7th century BC, it was seized by the Illyrians and later passed to the Romans. In the 4th century AD it became capital of Epirus Nova, a Roman province, but during its turbulent history, it later came under the control of Crusaders, Byzantines, Sicilians, Venicians, Greeks, Serbs and Albanians. It was declared capital of an independent Albania in 1913 but was overrun by Austrians and then Italians in WW1.
Tirana, the capital and largest city of the Republic of Albania, can be reached from Durres. It was founded in 1614 by Sulejman Pasha and became Albania's capital city in 1920.
