#3 of 13 in Sightseeing in Fethiye
Ruin Tourist Spot
Now in ruins, Tlos once served as the bustling urban center of ancient Lycia. According to legend, this site was home of the hero Bellerophon. One of the city's rock tombs allegedly belongs to him and bears a relief portraying the hero riding his famous horse, Pegasus. After the Lycians, the Romans took over the city, building a stadium and an amphitheatre whose remains you can still see. You can also view monuments of Byzantine and Ottoman architecture. The site is quite large and hilly, and a thorough exploration requires a bit of hiking over uneven terrain, so be sure to bring adequate footwear. Put Tlos at the forefront of your travel plans using our Fethiye travel itinerary planner.

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.
