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

Rock tombs in Fethiye dot the mountain sides around the city. The largest is easily accessible by steps. May be as good as Petra.

Amazing tombs built into the rocks. its quite a climb to get there but worth it. The tombs weren't signposted from the town but we got directions from the excellent archaeological museum's staff

We visited these Tomb's, as we were having Dinner at the Kings Garden restaurant. The views are very nice, but the Tomb's aren't great. Considering they date back to 400 years BC, you would think they would be looked after better. Maybe they don't want to damage them by trying to remove all the graffiti? They look far better from...

The rock tombs are easily accessible just behind the main town in the hills. We drove to the site and there is a small parking area just below the tombs. This is but one of the famous ancient sites available in the area.

What a wonderful example of ancient times, well worth the up hill visit. Do have lunch at the KIngs Garden, they even offer free transfers if you book to eat there. Enjoy, we did!

We'd heard a lot about the tombs and seen them from afar on the water taxi so thought we'd give it a go. I wouldn't describe this as a climb at all, just a short uphill walk and then a few steps, you do get hot so take plenty of water and I definitely recommend going in the morning so... More

It's well worth the slog up all the steps to get up close to these tombs, it's hard to imagine how they did it especially in that heat. The view from the top is amazing, and you will catch some great pictures of the sun set here. We booked through thompsons and it was for a 3 course meal at... More

Also known as the Lycian Tombs, we had a lot of trouble trying to get directions from the locals on how to find it. Turns out the reason is because the tomb itself is really not an impressive site. The main one had been sprayed in graffiti. However, because walk up takes very little time (30 min tops - the... More
