Approximately 34 kilometers northwest of Antalya lies Termessos and the beautiful Güllük Dagi National Park. The ancient Psidian city is built on a mountain platform, surrounded by pine woods and an abundance of rare plants. It’s one of the best preserved historical sites of Turkey and, due to its isolated location, an oasis of calm and tranquility.

It is a great place to enjoy a good hike and see some spectacular ruins. I would say this was the best place I visited in Antalya. You have to rent a car to get to the mountain, but it is well worth the car rental to enjoy some fascinating ruins in nature.

One of my favorite photos of my husband is in the theater here with the clouds at his feet. This is a fantastic site, one so high up that Alexander the Great said never mind as he was marching forward.

All city ruins stay in a fascinating nature. You can go trekking to the top of the mountain. Very peaceful with bird hummings. Do it! :)

The city is very well preserved, maybe the best preserved among the greek cities around Antalya. The surrounding walls, the amphitheatre, the graveyard are all still intact. From the amphitheatre's wall there is a breathtaking view of all the surrounding area. It should be an absolute 'don't miss' for all turists.

Termessos full of history, is a must visit. Its archaeological remains, combined with mediterranean vegetation and mountains is a combination of extreme beauty. Termessos does fly our imagination, such is the quality of conservation of the monuments of the Roman epoch reveals how it was the city that epoch.

There are prettier ruins elsewhere but the location makes this truly unique. Be sure to bring ~1 liter of water per person — although it's only a 20 min fairly steep walk up you'll want to walk around and explore the surreal site. We ended up spending 2½ hours there and walked ~6 km and only met maybe 10 other... More

It is quite a hike up there but so worth the effort. What an amazing place. The view of Mt. Olympus from the amphitheater was splendid.

A very atmospheric location, with some wonderful photographic opportunity's. But not for the very unfit as there is a lot of uphill walking and climbing over stones to get the best out of this stunning location. Good shoes, some water and a little effort will be well rewarded.
