Termessos, Antalya

4.7
#3 of 13 in Historic Sites in Antalya
Ruin Tourist Spot
Surrounded by dense pine forests and a multitude of wild plants, Termessos represents one of the best-preserved ancient cities in Turkey. Notable architectural structures of the city include the agora and the Roman theatre, which are joined by a large arched entrance. Look for the five small rooms under the stage where wild animals were kept before being taken into the arena. A king's road with wide porticoes winds within the city walls, and you'll see the remains of a gymnasium with an internal courtyard, an odeon, six temples of varying sizes, towers, Hadrian's gate, and the necropolis with hundreds of sarcophagi. Use our Antalya travel itinerary maker to add Termessos and other attractions to your Antalya vacation plans.

Where to stay in Antalya

The Mediterranean holiday spot of Antalya is abundant in places to stay. The Old Town of Kaleiçi boasts a plethora of small guesthouses and hostel offerings set in traditional Ottoman houses of stone. Often accompanied by a charming backyard pool and garden out front, these affordable accommodations are just a stone's throw from the harbor and amenities. You can find a few upscale boutique hotels here as well. If you're looking to splurge a little more, head to the suburb of Lara, just east of Antalya. Here, four- and five-star all-inclusive resorts dominate the sandy beaches.
