Visited over 30 ancient cities on a recent visit to Turkey and this was one of the highlights. Amazing location on top of a steep mountain. Bit of a steep walk to get to the ruins from the carpark. Visited in early September and it...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 .

Ancient historical place. I along with my friends visited this amazing place. Its better if you just read the history of this place before your tour.

We visited many ancient sites (18 in total) and Termessos was the most impressive of them all. The complex is huge, so if you are like us (serious interest in archaeology), you would need at least 6 hours here. We saw almost everything there was...More

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.
