Leaving the entrance gate behind you will first see a restored 16th century tower. In front of it there are headstones commemorating Luigi Maria Ugolini and Hasan Ceka two early archaeologists. Following the path through the eucalyptus alley will take you right into the heard of the ancient city the Agora. The eye catcher is the theatre dating back to the 3rd century BC with more than 2000 seats.

Nowadays there are occasionally concerts or performances organised. Check with the administration of Saranda (Tel 0852 3402). Pictures of Butrint theater performances can be seen here!
