The place is really averaged nothing really interisting here. Take 1hr by bus from fethiye will cost you TL14 and you have to walk around 15 minute to go to the place, the ticket price TL10.
If I can give suggestion better go to Tlos...More
Well worth a visit - only 10 lira per person to visit and it pretty extraordinary - been to lots of ruins in Italy and Greece and these are pretty amazing by comparison. You could quite happily do a quite whistle-stop tour round them all...More
It’s a beautiful ancient city with surrounding views. I mostly enjoyed seeing the elevated sarcophagus near the theater entrance, that’s unique to Xanthos. Still, Tlos was overall a better site to visit.
Had a car and took in Saklikent, Tlos, Pinara and Xanthos in one day
Got to Xanthos about 1730
Still hot but bearable
Very interesting site, Ampitheatre is impressive but one of many in the area (Tlos, Letoon, Patara and Pinara)
I was most impressed...More
This site has a lot of history to it worth reading when you get there - good signage. If you climb above the theatre there is a little plateau which was the acropolis and provides great views up the river and back towards the town....More
We visited Xanthos by jeep safari on the way to Saklikent. The ruins are fascinating with a good example of an amphitheatre, as well as the old ruins of the city. It was worth doing on a guided tour as the history of the Lycian’s...More
We came at 17:00 and it was still hot enough (early July) - take care, since no shadow at this place at all.
In general I would say this is absolutely optional place to be if you are an intermediate tourist - don`t go on...More
This is a great site, i went as part of a jeep safari by adda tours, its a good trip and nice to visit. The amphitheater is good and great to see - probably the highlight. The other ruins are less good and more like...More

Sorry but if you get a taxi I wouldn’t think it would be to expensive-but give yourself a good couple of hours and get one of the guides well worth it for the knowledge and information they have...hope you enjoy it 😊

Not very far but as we had a car as part of our villa package I cannot tell you much. Bus is probably a good option. Xanthos is a couple of miles beyond the Patara turn off the main road and there always seem to be taxis at that turning but bear in mind that the site is poorly signposted-=-it took us a while to find it. But very worthwhile and impressive
