  • The ancient city of Telmessos, leaving its roots in ancient times, long a strong independence from Lycia, according to legend, was founded by as much as themselves, the cult of Apollo which was maintained in the city for centuries. Many have survived to this day rock tombs and sarcophagi, standing around which formed the modern streets of Fethiye. Often the sarcophagus with the lid inverted boat stand right in the middle of the roadway, and houses closely adjacent to the rock tombs. Fortress, to the ruins where you can climb up to admire the views of Fethiye, also exists at this place since ancient times. Well preserved amphitheatre, referring to the period of Roman rule already. Sightseeing of ancient Telmessosa need at least half a day.

  • The ancient settlement is located near the village of Dodurga and represents a complex of Lycian sarcophagi scattered over a wide area. The main thing here-no novodela! As standing 2000 years ago, sarcophagi and the tower is now in the vegetable gardens of the local residents. Very authentic place.

Where to stay in Fethiye

The multifaceted seaside region of Fethiye offers an equally diverse array of accommodations. In the immediate town, guesthouses with basic rooms or dormitory-style accommodations sit just a short walk from the marina, shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. North of town along the coast, you'll discover a strip of many inexpensive seaside hotels. For a more secluded holiday, venture inland among the valleys and hills to one of the guesthouses or fully equipped cottages. If it's authenticity you're after, seek the privacy of a secluded inn in the heart of the local villages. Here you'll trade convenience for coziness and hospitality.
