This trip take you to the Ancient City of Tlos, it was the capital of the Lycian empire. It was colonised by the romans after the height of their powers & they built a fair sized amphitheatre along side the existing city. A long walk up the hill takes you to the citadel & the Lycian tombs carved into the... More

Have been here a few times, site is quite large and lots to explore. Always something new to see that we have missed on previous visits. There are some guided tours but beware of local trying to take you round and then trying to charge you an extortionate rate for it. There are little history signs dotted about with info... More

I personally found this a little boring, ruins of settlers from years back. You have to pay to walk around the place. Good views at the top though. Take good walking shoes as the paths are rocky and unstable in places.

We stopped here but very briefly To see the ruins. We really were short of time to do too much but managed a climb to the top in flip flops ( not recommended !) Superb site with. A little cafe, loos and some gift stalls, well worth a visit.

Tour to Tlos was a part of a package day trip that we have booked. If you are into history or architecture or maybe both, it is a must visit place during your holiday in Turkey. There is quite steep hike to the top of the hill and the paths/stairs are quite slippery due to the rolling rocks, so sensible... More

Though not as big as Ephasus, this must run a close second. The walk up to the top is steep and is not for the imfirm...but it's worth the effort if you can, just for the panoramic views alone. The sarcophagi are amazing and should be view close up.

This was part of an all day trip Totally agree with other contributors Absolutely stunning views Depending on age it is a steep climb in 30 odd degree heat but well worth the effort Orcan the guide with Pioneer Travel was excellent and so knowledgeable

A dramatic setting on top of a rocky crag. Plenty of opportunity to wander over and around the old city. Remains of the amphitheatre are out of bounds.

This is a large well preserved historical site with reasonable entrance fee and information boards around the site. It is quite a steep climb up to the top and sensible shoes are a must as the steps are quite slippy. A small bar across the road has parking and the drinks are reasonable, menu is limited but food is good.

Went here on 21/09/2014 as part of an excursion package. Boiling hot as we went mid afternoon - so take water - but an enjoyable afternoon out. Lots of information boards around to explain the architecture and history, its a good climb to the top (vertigo sufferers, its not the worst but can give you the trembles!) but once you... More
