Best time to go to Durres

For the hottest and driest conditions, July and August see temperatures reach the early-thirties and rainfall is at its lowest – perfect for lazy beach days. If crowds aren’t your thing, then head to Durres between May and June or September and October where temps are still warm – rising to the mid-twenties and the city is a bit more relaxed. Winters in Durres are generally quiet and mild, but they do get chilly with soggy days in the period between November and March.
