The Roman Amphitheater of Durres along with the Byzantine Forum and Romans Baths, have unique archaeological, architectural, environmental, and social assets for the city’s future cultural tourism. AADF strongly believes that investments in their revitalization will contribute to re-connecting the physical and visual links between historical and cultural assets of the urban heritage of the city. In turn, they will serve as a tourism magnet and in the long run, transform Durres into a key tourist attraction in Albania and the region.
The project designs for the revitalization of the Amphitheater Complex and adjacent monuments will extend the range of conservation interventions while enhancing the sites through active archaeological excavations, presentation/interpretation, and valorization. They will further help in leveraging funds from other stakeholders and international partners for the overall implementation of the project.
