If you have an interest in history this place is worth going to see, not too close, don't want it damaged, use Google, there are a number of restaurants along the river opposite the tombs, the tombs are lit at night, worth a look even if history doesn't turn you on.

We saw these Tombs on a trip up the Dalyan River from the mud baths to the beach. We stopped on the way for photo's of them, & they do look quite impressive knowing they date back to over 400 years BC. The whole of the Dalyan area is well worth visiting.

By far one of the most interesting things in Dalyan. The tombs are over 2,000 years old and represent kings and queens and different types of royalty who have been held in high regard and have passed away.

Our hotel (The Metin) overlooked the tombs so while eating breakfast which was on a rooftop was a stunning view. Most trips take in these tombs so beware that the same history will be talked about. We went on 3 trips and each time we were told about them!

The Lycian Tombs were breath taking even after having seen so many photos. Glowing in the warm afternoon light, the tombs looked like miniature temples. You do not need to take the boat as you can see them very well with good photographic possibilities from the small riverside park on Yali Sokak. How did the Lycians influence the Athens Acropolis?...

The tombs are a fascination to look at. You can't get much closer to see them than the road on the way up to Kaunos but they are amazing in their size and the story that they tell.

Demre is ancient Myra and the birthplace of St. Nicholas. A few years ago it was possible to clamber about the tombs but measures are now in place to prevent this - and thus preserve the site. Other similar tombs can be seen at Fethiye and across the river from Dalyan.
