Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
Situated between beaches and mountains completely immersed in greenery, Phaselis Antique City presents the crumbling remains of what was once an important harbor for the region. Merchants from Greece, Egypt, and Asian countries used it for commerce from the 7th century BCE. As you walk along its 24 m (79 ft) wide central street, you'll encounter ruins of ancient perfumeries and other stores, plus structures that housed lavish Roman baths, and theaters more than two millennia old. You'll also find forgotten artifacts and sarcophagi here. If the weather's right, you may want to refresh yourself in the sea right next to the ancient city. A visit to Phaselis Antique City represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Kemer itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

  • Went for a walk around the ruins while on holiday in Turkey. We arrived almost to the opening, around 8 am, and have been for some time alone. Entrance cost of 20 lire. Nice walked half an hour around the ruins. Then buses started coming with large tourist groups. As always the guides did not hasten, one group stood at some stone and listened to the story guide minutes 30. We bypassed all 20-30 minutes. Most liked the theatre, it is near the coast and to him goes the wooden staircase.
