Approximately 34 kilometers northwest of Antalya lies Termessos and the beautiful Güllük Dagi National Park. The ancient Psidian city is built on a mountain platform, surrounded by pine woods and an abundance of rare plants. It’s one of the best preserved historical sites of Turkey and, due to its isolated location, an oasis of calm and tranquility.

As others have noted, Termessos is an unrestored site. Very interesting to walk into, nearly get lost. The sights are impressive but the walk do not suit elders and tour groups so it's pretty amazing. I took a dolmus up to the intersection, after which a 10 kilometer ride is required to get up. Don't even think of walking, as... More

for history buffs, this is a must ! if you came to Antalya only for R&R, you will surely miss one of the most gorgeous views in all Turkey.

We hired a car to get to Termessos and we are glad that we made the trip. It's well worth exploring the site and basically impossible to get there without a car. 9km walk uphill from the main road. The theatre is the highlight as it is in such good condition and in an impressive location. I recommend going relatively... More

We have visited the theatre but is not really interesting. We have seen better and more interesting once. But it was included in our program and we have visited it.

Worth making the effort to get there but allow at least three hours for the visit. Wear sturdy shoes, it's a tough climb

A magnificent ancient city some way out of Antalya. A long and interesting walk. Not for the faint hearted, elderly or disabled.

What a beautiful site! There is so much to see that you had best allow at least three hours here. The information available at the site is limited so do your homework first. The site is on the top of a mountain so be prepared for a bit of uphill walking, but it is well worth it (wear good hiking/walking... More

THIS IS NOT SUITABLE IF YOU HAVE DIFFICULTY WALKING. These ruins are amazing. You have to drive approx 5miles to the car park. You can do this as a coach trip or tour. Once at the car park you have about a one mile walk uphill on a rocky, shaley, unkept path to get to the ruins. There are the... More
