The Lycian Rock Tombs are located high in the cliffs at the top of old town of Fethiye. It's a 15 minute walk up but worth the trip. It costs a few Turkish Lira to get into the tomb of Amyntas. The tombs are huge, far bigger than you expect with a spectacular carved facades. The one drawback is they... More

Quite a hike to get up to the tombs which can be found quite easily as they are high up on a hill so can be seen from a long way off. 5 Lira to go up. No information provided and it is a steep climb but you can gain full access which is why the whole of the tomb... More

It is truly amazing seeing the creations of people who once lived, you can get really close up to them and it is breath taking the amount of detail and quality that has been put into building them. We had a great tour guide that told us the whole history of each tomb and which one would have been used... More

Just on the edge of town, you could walk or take one of the reasonably priced taxis to the ancient rock tombs. You should make a point of visiting at sunset when the light really enhances this magical area. Interesting, peaceful, just magical. Don't miss

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. We took a local dolmus to the otogar (bus station) to check out timetables and ticketing for the following day (for a trip on to Bodrum). The otogar was perhaps... More

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. All was well until he started demanding 5 lira from each of us for his unsolicited commentary. He was rather... More

We saw these on a boat trip that we hated (loved the ruins). We also ate at King's Garden Restaurant to see them . Call them and they will pick you up. I wasn't crazy about the food, but it was worth it to see the ruins.
