We visited Termessos because it was close to our place. We were overwhelmed with size and beauty. We were lucky because there was almost nobody during our visit. The views are superb, all stones, crumble buildings and the amphitheater are amazing. I'm really surprised this...More

Its a bit of a drive out from Antalya but worth it for the views on the way up to Termessos. When you get there its quite a steep climb up and unfortunately it was cool and misty and grey on our visit. We glimpsed...More

Beautifully preserved amphitheatre at clifftop. Ruins are reasonably marked but could have done with a map as it was a bit hard to find amphitheatre (signposted theatro). Once you reach beautiful hilltop with giant dam follow signs for theatro .

I reached this site by car which I had hired for a few days, as I had other places to visit. It's quite easy to find, since it's off a major road heading northwest from Antalya city. I should add that one should either join...More

It took us 45 minutes each way with a 5 year old. Take at least one bottle of water for each hiker.

Hi, As far as I can remember there was no public transport to Termosses though taxi was not that expensive. It is worth a morning trip.
