Nice afternoon visit

We live locally but took family members for their first visit. We loved it in every way but my family found it too difficult to trek over the ruins. Views are spectacular too!

Tlos is most impressive for its rock tombs perched on the side of the hill. They didn't always look like this - if you get the chance to climb them you may still see (as I did) that there are tombs that had marble or mosaic fascia to them. The one mentioned was being excavated at the time. If you... More

The drive, the ruins, the views all just amazing. If in the area you should experience this area. Small restaurant on the main road is also worth a stop.

We visited as part of the jeep safari. Everything is visible from the road so we felt a bit guilty not paying for a closer inspection. There is a cafe by the ruins and local farmers are on hand to sell their wares.

Wonderful site but no safety measures. Not for young children. even with good walking boots the place is dangerous.

The Lycian city ruins including a well preserved Amptheatre is well worth the time for those interested in such things. As part of Lycian history it's a must and the small family restaurant opposite is great for a kebab

Didn't even know it existed, but a huge rambling site. If you go, try to make sure whatever trip your on gives you at least 30 mins to explore.

It is well worth making the effort to get to Tlos, one of the major cities of the Lycian Federation. It's mountaintop location offers fantastic views of the Xanthos (Esen) valley and is linked to the myths of Bellerophon and Pegasus.
