Ancient Rock Tombes, Fethiye

4.1
#4 of 13 in Sightseeing in Fethiye
Ruin Tourist Spot
Admire Ancient Rock Tombes, carved into the cliff face on a hill above town. These well-preserved tombs are easily accessible from the town, given that the ancient Lycians preferred to live with their deceased nearby. Catch your breath after the steep uphill climb by enjoying a drink and meal at the restaurant conveniently located close to the tombs at the top of the hill. Capture a panoramic view of the surrounding cliffs and town from your position near the tombs. Be sure to wear appropriate footwear, given the uphill climb.

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.
