Patara is an amazingly intact ancient city next to a long sandy beach near Fethiye Turkey.
The amphitheatre and wealthy citizens tomb on the hill behind are magnificent. Even if you are not a history buff, spend some time in one of the 30 rows of theatre seats and hike to the top of hill to the tomb for view of the sea and city. Wear good walking shoes to visit the tomb. Sandals are enough for the theatre where you should spend an hour or more feeling the energy from the rows of giant stones. Relax, meditate, read or just imagine life in this remarkable ancient city. There are many ruins to see before a rest and a swim at the nearby sandy beach. Visit early in the season or during summer peak, arrive early or late in the day to avoid the tour buses.
