Owner description: Approximately 34 kilometers northwest of Antalya lies Termessos and the beautiful Güllük Dagi National Park. The ancient Psidian city is built on a mountain platform, surrounded by pine woods and an abundance of rare plants. It’s one of the best preserved historical sites of Turkey and, due to its isolated location, an oasis of calm and tranquility.

The climb up the hill is not for the faint hearted but well worth it especially to see the amphitheatre. The views are amazing & the thought that a small town was built in this location is incredible. My 18 year old daughter did not want to go & then raved about it afterwards

After having been to Perge and Aspendos, these ruins were in the state they had been found in and therefore were not as well-preserved as other ruins I'd seen. There was also an inclined climb for 20 mins which was quite tough in the heat

Incredible place to visit if you like old ruins and Greek/Roman history but be warned it is quite a trek to the top after you leave the car park so a hat and plenty of water are essentialt

This is a government run park, only one restaurant with place to buy water and incidentals. Hike up an see Roman ruins on the way. The views are stunning and the Roman Amphitheater at the very top is breathtaking.

This was very hard work. The paths were almost non-existant and quite dangerous in places. The theatre was inspiring once you had managed to get there.
