Nice walk through the old ruines, got on a local bus for 4 Turkish Lira and did our own thing. Plenty of parking and toilets. There is a free bus to take you part way for those that need it

This was a great experience to view the most popular site in the Turkish culture, also you have locals that are willing to take you on a mini tour especially if you are going on a sea trip via the boats.

For a couple of quid entry - this is a must. A fabulous experience - you can stay as long as you like and take loads of brilliant photos.
