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

Termessos was a Psidian site from early times that was peopled by tough, independent little fellows that never took a backward step and their necropolis is filled with sarcophagi with warrior shields. They lived atop a mountain in the Taurus mountains that takes ages to...More

Located inside a country park, up in the mountains, after a long, uneven trek up, (after you have felt like giving up at least a couple of times), you will be impressed with the sight of the ruined amphitheatre, wonderful views from up there, well...More

Fantastic Experience. You should expect a minimum of 2 hrs for this trip which takes place in a rather challenging terrain. Restoration has not begun in the area, so you are seeing the ruins as they are. Went there with 3 grumpy teenagers, who ended...More

We went to this site using a travel agency for a day tour. The experience was great. The guide explained the whole history background therefore it was quite interesting. We spent several hours over there. Take proper shoes as you will have to walk in...More

minimally restored ancient site in beautiful setting, requires good walking shoes, reasonable fitness as climbing involved. There in hot weather so needed plenty of drinking water. The ancient sarcophagi at the bottom are incredible

Termessos is truly every bit as majestic and awe-inspiring as touted to be, particularly the half-ruined amphitheater against the backdrop of a mountain peak. Do visit in the late afternoon when the (summer) heat is less oppressive and the sun is shining on the amphitheater...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.
