Been to patara and xanthos on this trip to Turkey but in my opinion left the best to last. The position high on a hill top make this site step back in time. The lovely stadium is fairly unusual especially combined with the swimming pool. It the best is the lovely necropolis beneath the acropolis. Beautiful tombs trying to look... More

We stopped at Tlos on a day trip to Saklikent Gorge. Despite being really hot it was a fairly easy climb up to the mid-way point to see the necropolis. Definitely worth a look and you also have great views of the mountains from the site.

Loved the place. The view is wonderful and the feeling when you are on top of the mountains is incredible. The lycian tombs are extraordinary and I got some chills...pretty spooky fealing. The wind through the grass, the quiet...everything is magic.

Tlos is a village on the way to salikent gorge tours this is worth a visit as it has lots of ancient tombs and roman buildings which you can walk around after paying a small fee. If you go an operator tour you get a guide who can pass on a lot of info about the people who used to... More

Beautiful, ancient Lycaean city, featuring a necropolis, an agora (market place), church, gymnasium & medical school. Wonderful views, not good for disabled visitors due to the uneven terrain & the climb up to the necropolis. You will need to wear sturdy shoes/sandals with grips for the climb up as some of the stones on the trail up to the top... More

Ruins can be boring at times but Tlos was a positive surprise. A three hours drive from Marmaris this place is surely worth a visit. There's a five euro entry fee which I was happy to pay even "just" for the views.

Whilst travelling to Yakapark and Saklikent, we were able to make a stop at Tlos which was an unexpected surprise. For this reason, we were unable to explore Tlos in depth which was unfortunate. However, just seeing this miraculous site from a distance is enough to appreciate its beauty. Turkey never fails to amaze me, there are so many sites... More
