Despite the tombs being empty, having been robbed over the years, this is an amazing place to visit. Very impressive tombs carved in the rock hillside. Similar to the tombs in Dalyan, but you can get much closer. Go with a guide to hear the...More

Myra is very much on the coach tour route, so expect crowds at high season. The site is very restricted and the tombs can only be viewed from a distance. There are far better sites to visit, albeit a little off the beaten track. Well...More

These are the graves of kings and predate the Romans. Kings and queens were immured with their favourite servant and grave goods such as silverware. Most of these graves were latter robbed.

One of the nicest rock tomb group we saw on the trip, and additionally you see an amphitheater too. You can’t enter the tombs in this location like in Fethiye, but that’s fine. Well worth the visit.

Myra may not be worth a day trip from Istanbul, unless you see it as religious pilgrimage.
