2 p.m. in the afternoon,. 46 degrees in the shade and the whole place to ourselves. So much history, so much to think about. Hire a car and see for yourself. Park in the small cafe up the road and go and see the theatre on your way back,. Buy a drink at the cafe and the waitress will lend... More

Dont miss out on these ancient ruins. We could not believe the scale of buildings that stand high up at Tlos, we cant imagine how they were built. There is the remains of an athletics venue, an amthitheatre both ofwhichyou can look atbut not access. The castle you can go to, at a small cost of f5 Lira, every entrance... More

This was a lovely stop off for an hour or so if it's your thing, the ruins are interesting, the people in the little bars and shops opposite are friendly and not pushy in any way......a nice trip out

We visited Tlos in the early evening and were met with stunning 360 views at sunset. The site was not crowded and it was great to be able to walk around the structures and climb up the old (somewhat dangerous steps.) Great site and the cost of admission was 5TL per person.

This site is worth the admission and a scenic short drive from Fethiye. It was very quiet the day we were there, only one tour group, and it was so nice to leisurely walk around and explore. If you aren't an archaeologists you might get a little bored, but the ruins are interesting and great for photos. The view of... More

The city of Tlos is spread on a large area. The terrain is dry and rocky. It'll take you about 2-3 hours to walk the whole city, so definitely wear sneakers. It gets very hot in the summer time, put sunblock lotion on, wear a hat, take a big bottle of water and some snacks with you. There are also... More
