These were accessible by walking and we went at night and could walk right up through the gate. Only a couple of tombs - but right there in the town.

There's not a huge amount to see here but if you are staying in Fethiye then it's well worth the walk. There's a small charge and it's a steep walk. I was disappointed to see that the tombs have been covered in graffiti and there doesn't seem to have been much of an effort to remove it. However, it is... More

At a price of 5 lira to walk up to the tombes, it is not very expensive and the tombes themselves are quite impressive. Unfortunately they are covered in graffiti, which slightly ruins the whole experience.

Walked up from the harbour through old Fetiye, stone cut steps and houses perched high into the cliffs. Stunning views over islands in bay. Up to castle, by road, and then right to the tombs, impressive and more tombs in the village. Take water and don't rush things. Certainly worth the effort.

We walked to the rock tombs from our hotel. There is a small charge to gain access to the area to see the tombs close up. You need to be fit and able! Shame about the graffiti on the tombs though.

There are Lycian tombs all along the Mediterranean coast from Fethiye to Kas and maybe beyond. The best I saw, and I saw many, are the group in Fethiye. They are elaborate and grouped in a very dramatic way. If in the area, it is well worth the climb to this hillside to get a close look and to go... More

Wonderful to see, We went on the Dalyan River trip to Turtle beach the trip takes you down the river and you will see these tombs. Really quite amazing how these have got so high up and carved into the stone. Well worth a visit my 13 year old son was in awe.

We saw the Rock Tombs during our day long boat trip along the Dalyan river. Even from afar, these tombs looked beautiful. They were very large and elegant for tombs with intricate carvings on many of them. These were all carved on the cliff-sides of rocky hills.
