Termessos was a Psidian site from early times that was peopled by tough, independent little fellows that never took a backward step and their necropolis is filled with sarcophagi with warrior shields. They lived atop a mountain in the Taurus mountains that takes ages to...More

Located inside a country park, up in the mountains, after a long, uneven trek up, (after you have felt like giving up at least a couple of times), you will be impressed with the sight of the ruined amphitheatre, wonderful views from up there, well...More

Fantastic Experience. You should expect a minimum of 2 hrs for this trip which takes place in a rather challenging terrain. Restoration has not begun in the area, so you are seeing the ruins as they are. Went there with 3 grumpy teenagers, who ended...More

minimally restored ancient site in beautiful setting, requires good walking shoes, reasonable fitness as climbing involved. There in hot weather so needed plenty of drinking water. The ancient sarcophagi at the bottom are incredible

Termessos is truly every bit as majestic and awe-inspiring as touted to be, particularly the half-ruined amphitheater against the backdrop of a mountain peak. Do visit in the late afternoon when the (summer) heat is less oppressive and the sun is shining on the amphitheater...More

Read about Termessos before going and you will appreciate it even more! It's truly unique...about 20 minutes strenuous hike each way and took us about 1.5 hours total with a 5-yr old boy. May wasn't too hot but I would recommend bringing water especially if...More

Hi, As far as I can remember there was no public transport to Termosses though taxi was not that expensive. It is worth a morning trip.

We also really enjoyed Sagalossus, about 100kms north of Antalya. It was very quiet but really well maintained with good signage. We visited while staying at Egadir which was a good base. Despite the crowds, Ephesus was... More

Entrance is 5tl that you pay at the gate before carrying on a mile or so to the ruins themselves. There is a carpark, with public loos, just before accessing the ruins which can only be done on foot.
