I was in Gjirokaster on a Sunday, so I don't know if the city is more lively during the weekdays. Nevertheless, things were pretty sleepy in the historic area and there were only a few people sitting out front of a café or what my driver kept calling "police" (?). The city is built on a very steep mountain side and you can get great pictures of the town houses and streets snaking up the side of the mountain with everything is that eerie dark grey stone that dots the mountain sides all through southern Albania.
