Our hotel was directly facing the Rock Tombs. A wonderful backdrop to a great holiday in Dalyan, Unfortunately not able to visit these.

Lovely to see these rocks dominating the town of Dalyan. I went across to the other side of the river by boat, hoping to see them closer-up. There is now a ticket-booth where people pay to go into the tomb area, but this was disappointing as you simply got about 100 m (if that) closer but were unable to get... More

These tombs are a relic from the Lycian past, yet they are amazingly preserved after 2,500 years. You can see them from the boats and many restaurants have great views. One time I was walking past them on a rainy cold day when no one was out and I thought I heard noises coming from the tombs. It turned out... More

What a fantastic place to visit but its a long climb and best to do it in the morning before the sun is so fierce. I loved sitting across the river at night looking at the tombs as it was lit up and really was stunning.

We did a river cruise and saw these magnificent structures from the river. Despite not being able to go inside, they are fascinating to see from the outside. You can go inside the stadium and it gives you a real sense of its enormity.

Saw these tombs from our boat ride. Truly an amazing spectacle. The work that went into them and the fact that they have lasted all those years

It made a nice change, also fantastic seeing something from 2400 years ago and our tour guide was able to give a really good factual talk but did not make it boring. Amazing photos too.
