  • The archaeological park sits atop a mountain with a spectacular view. The entrance fees cost 300 Lek per person. There is no ticketing counter.

The paths in the park are barely existent as they only comprise semi-trampled grass.
  • The walls of Byllis were 2,200m long, enclosing 30 hectares of a plain atop a hill 524m above sea level. There were 6 gates in the city walls. The road coming from Apollonia passed through two of them, crossing Byllis in the direction of the narrows of gorges of the Vjosa river on the way to Macedonia or those of Antigonia in the direction of Epirus.
