This place is amazing. Cleopatra once looked out to sea from here. I must admit I was a little scared to get so close. You need good walking shoes to walk around. Its better to go with a guide or a local. Someone who can tell you some of the history of this amazing place. Wouldn't recommend going here if... More

Got a taxi to top, went into castle for views and then walked down. No, there isn't a great deal to see of the castle but the views from inside the walls are worth the pittance of an entry fee. Only thing to watch is getting ripped off in the little shop outside ticket office. £4 for 2 small waters... More

Nothing to see in the castle , But the Panoramic views are fantastic. Not worth the entry fee, nothing to see within the walls of the Castle

I recommend you take a taxi and ask for a round trip price for going up to the castle and then seeing the sights. We found a nice taxi driver who was with us for an hour for 60 Lira. He showed us the places and we managed to see everything there was to see in an hour. The castle... More

Once you exit the cruise terminal, look to your right to see for a white minaret with a black top. If you do not see it, ask a local person who works at the cruise terminal. The minaret is near where the dolmus bus stop is. The walk to the dolmus stop is about 15 mins. We stopped along the... More

The castle that me and my husband went to was quite a wonderful castle. Lots of views and lots of places that u can take pictures of. The castle was quite big. Easy to see and was quite a good way to explore this place.
