We spent the morning here and it was a remarkable place to visit. Public transport from Tekirova is available and drops you off just outside the site. A short walk down a tree lined road and you come across amazing sights which give a real insight into life at that time. Well worth a visit and not expensive. Would recommend... More

We accessed this ancient site by following the Lycian Way along the coast for a couple of hours from Tekirova. There were a few tricky bits en route but never dangerous. The city itself is situated right on the coast and has three harbours. A wide street runs through the middle of the city with Hadrian Waterway Gate at its... More

Not much of the buildings still standing,however that said what,s there gives a good impression.The main attraction is the three lovely bays it is built round and the backdrop of the pine forest,very peaceful.

Here there is little Cafe selling hot and cold drinks snacks, and toasted sanwiches, and a few souvenirs. Prices are very good and... More

Really liked Phaselis for the ruins, beautiful setting and was very quiet when we visited. If you have time and like walking it is worth walking around the Necropolis to the north of the main site as great walk through the trees and you come across quite a few sarcophagus in an area which looks like it is yet to...

Took the local bus and paid entrance of TRY10. We walked down the coniferous pathway and was enthralled by the lovely bay and the ruins and history in this place. Lovely place to explore the amphitheatre, Hamas and to spend half a day. Guard at the end of the beach was very friendly and pointed us the way to hike... More

This is probably the most beautiful place I have ever I have ever visited. The location is idyllic on the southern Turkish coast. An ancient Roman city ruin smaller than many better well known sites but with just as much of interest. Three Agoras, a theatre, three harbours, Acropolis, Necropolis, baths and the most beautiful aqueduct. I spent 3 hours... More
