Fleeting visit during the Dalyan River trip that included the Mud and Sulphur Bats and Turtle Beach Trip with Seaside Travel. We had an excellent narration on the Tombs and Ruined City by the Guide.

From a distance these ancient rock tombs looked intriguing, close up they are amazing. Carved/hewn from the solid living rock, these tombs are testimony to the expertise of Lycian stonemasons who carved these tombs as the last resting places of their Kings. We found the walk a bit steep for senior travelers, but Oh my, was it worth it! What... More

If you like history then you will love these. I walked through the empty streets of the Old Town and onward for about 15 minutes just before 8 am. Apart from a few old guys sitting outside cafes drinking tea and an ancient chancer offering to show me the way most people seemed to be still asleep. The small ticket... More

Not as good as Tolls or Dalayan but worth walking up to if you're down there. Can see everything from the road so don't pay the entrance fee.

Very beautiful and set in side of a massive hill. The historic story is quite interesting about it all but plenty of walking is involved. Not great for kids.

Decently priced entrance but not a lot to see really, just an old tomb that has been vandalised significantly, a real shame.

Think these are unique to Fethiye (we think?). Its not a place you would spend a lot of time but interesting how they made such structures so long ago. A good photo opportunity for photos over Fethiye.

Tombs carved from solid rock with views across Fethiye. What's not to like? While you can't enter them, they are very impressive to look at and the views across Fethiye are stunning. Tickets are cheap to purchase and well worth it. Easy walk up the steps even at midday. Some people seem to be confusing these with the tombs near... More

2400 years old, carved from the solid rock, quite remarkable. These tombs are typical of the area and can be found in many of the river cliffs and other escarpments.

You can bury your 5 lira here. But view is nice, try it. Condition is not perfect, but main idea of these tombs are there.
