    Archaeological site of cute and fairly well maintained, but unfortunately the whole is ruined by a valet parking abuse at the entrance (just under a sign that indicates the free parking) and staff quite rude.

    Missing one star for the shameful attitude of the attendants at the entrance. We pay two tickets in euros and the rest in lek missing money. Alright little stuff. The worst thing is that a guy makes us go from a turnstile already open and gives us two tickets already used with date and time do not correspond to the day! Walk with me, realize it, we go back to the scoundrel who readily detect this gives us the right ticket. No comment. In a place so important for Albania would serve people more honest knowledgeable and passionate about. Even here in the South it seems normal to act like this.

    Staying in Ksamil decided to visit this archaeological site and we were amazed for the cleaning and care of the ruins. The only "bad" bugs along the way ... but then we were in the Woods and near the sea.
