Durres Bari Ferry reviews

  • "Great!"

    My brother and I had a lovely time in the cheap rooms below deck. Dark and quiet, it felt like we were sleeping in a little space capsule! No gasoline smell or anything--don't know why people pay so much to sleep above the cars.

Durres Guide

Located on the Albanian coast, Durres is a city that is around 33 km to the west of the Albanian capital, Tirana. It is Albania's second largest city, its main port and is one of the most ancient and economically significant in the country. Lying on the coast at one of the narrowest points in the Adriatic Sea, the Italian port of Bari is around 300 km away and Brindisi is 200 km away.

Popular attractions in the city include its main library, its cultural centre with the Aleksander Moisiu Theatre, the Estrada Theatre, the puppet theatre and the philharmonic orchestra. For visitors who enjoy a bit of history, there are a number of museums in the city including the Durres Archaeological Museum, the Royal Villa of Durres and the Museum of History.

The city is also home to the Durres Ancient City Wall, Durres Cathedral and the largest amphitheatre in the Balkans which is located close to the harbour. This first-century construction is currently under consideration for being declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Ferry destinations available from the port include Bari, Ancona, Trieste and Brindisi.


Bari Guide

The Italian city and port of Bari lies on the Adriatic Sea coasty and is the capital of the Italian region of Puglia. The city is not particularly well known as a tourist destination although there are a few sights of interest and is conveniently located for visitors to use it as a base from which to explore the surrounding area. The city's historic centre is located on a headland that protrudes into the Adriatic Sea. Most of the archaeology in the city lies beneath the maze of narrow lanes in the Vecchia Bari quarter of the city which is famous for being confusing to visitors who frequently find themselves lost. Bari's most famous church is located between the sea and the Old Town, and is the 11th century Romanesque Basilica di San Nicola. The church is dedicated to St. Nicholas and was built in order to house his remains, which still lie in the crypt. In the main part of the church there are several interesting sights including an elaborate stone canopy over the altar and an 11th century marble bishop's throne, known as the Cattedra di Elia.

From the port of Bari, ferries depart towards Durres, Igoumenista, Cephalonia, Corfu, Patras, Kotor and Dubrovnik.
