You can see the tombs on hillside, not well signposted, but its easy to work out where to go. A short but steep walk up , great views from the top. Enjoy freshly squeezed orange juice at the cafe by the entrance afterwards!

The ancient burial tombs of Fethiye are not immediately apparent until you venture a little outside the downtown area of the city. We essentially stumbled across them whilst out walking.

There was a steep climb up towards the tombs. The helpful local sat outside the shop on the corner directed us further uphill and shortly afterwards followed us on his motorbike and started to explain the history of the area.

Ancient Lycean tombs carved out of the cliff face on high to get them closer to their gods - fascinating. Great viewed from our boat with a cold beer in 40degree heat
