An ancient archaeological site some 6km northwest of the city centre, Scupi dates back to the Dardanians although the unearthed exhibits on display all date from its period under Roman rule. With the exception of the remains of the early Christian basilica, the civil basilica and a few house foundations there’s little to see here. The Roman amphitheatre was closed to the public when we visited and the whole experience was somewhat lacklustre to say the least. If you understand archaeology, have a vivid imagination and an interest in Balkan history then it’s worth making the trip to see it, otherwise we recommend you don’t bother. Note that there’s no café or shop nearby, so take plenty of water if you’re visiting the site during the summer. To reach it, head west out of the city just north of the river and take a right just after the Hotel Evro Set. Note that Scupi is diabolically signposted, although it does feature on Google Maps.
