We visited in the low season, April 2018. There were hardly any people at all and we enjoyed the exhilaration of discovery. Phaselis is a gem of an ancient city, a must-see if you are interested in history. Reserve 3-4 hours to walk, look around,...More

I'm no expert in ancient history. I can only say it is a nice place to go to if you are tired of shopping. Bus number 08 from Kemer centre will take you there for 4.5 TL. Entrance 30 TL. Closes at 5pm.

The stunning site of a Lycian port city. It provides access to beaches and the well-preserved remains of a once-thriving seaport along with beautiful views of Mount Olympos. The Main Street, agora, amphitheatre and aqueduct are impressive. Take a picnic and idle the afternoon away.

Very nice place to visit if you enjoy learning more about history. The place seems to be popular with locals who come there all geared up for a day on the beach.

If you go to the main bus station in Kemerovo which is by the clock tower you can get on the number 8 bus. Sometimes the buses do not have numbers so look for the place name of Phasilis on the front of the bus. Cost is about... More
