Termessos, Antalya

(750+ reviews on the web)
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.
