Lycian Rock Tombs can set ones imagination off! Superb place! Wonder about the past civilisations?. Lycians were a legendary nation. Have a wonder around the rock tombs and learn more about them by paying a visit to the local Museum. And you may discover something in the process. .

İ was full of expectations when planning our driving trip from Bodrum to eastern Turkey to make a special stop here. Only one tomb is accessible, and it is full of graffiti & reeks of urine. Definitely not worth the 5TL admission fee, & not worth a special trip. I was able to take some nice pictures and the view... More

This is well worth a visit, just to see where the dog might have hung out from the book by Louis de Bernieres. Sadly, it has had graffiti daubed on it. amazing to see the structures carved out of the rock.

I walked from my hotel which was at the docks near te ferry stop. It took me about 20minutes. I even passed a sarcophagus along the way that was acting as a traffic round about. The first few tombs are free to see but you can't go in them. You walk past them, admire them and go to the main... More

The was wonderful from the tomb hill but area was so dirty & messy. Very easy to get there from the center of Fethiye. It's about 15 minutes walk.

It is good exercise to find, great views of Fethiye from the top of the steps, there is nothing to see inside the tombs, so 5tl might seem a waste of money to some. If you go up the hill towards the ruined castle, there are some more tombs cut into the rocks that you can see for free.

The rock tombs above Fethiye were easy to access and nice to look at. It wasn't very big, and the site can be easily done in 10-20 minutes. There are some good photo opportunities from certain angles. One thing I didn't like was the graffiti on the tombs. It is unfortunate that people would deface ancient ruins such as these.... More

Could only see these tombs from a boat in the river but the were amazing. The trip also included the mud baths, lunch and an hour on turtle beach. Well worth the cost for a very relaxing day out,

This was a great place to visit while I stayed at Fethiye, the ruins are quite well preserved and there were wild tortoises roaming about!

So ancient,, and yet relatively well preserved and in the rock face! You cannot get closer than around 50m but very good view from road, and no charges
