Overview
More
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.

We went to Termessos in December so it was quiet there. The ruins are not reconstructed at all so it is all in the same condition as it was abandoned, according to my google search due to the earthquake. It is quite difficult climbing for...More

We were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves when we went (off season in November and early in the morning). It is truly amazing. I've never been to a site like that where you can freely explore and clamber among the ruins....More

Im not massively into history but went along with my partner. Pleasantly surprised. Free to get in and walk around opposite the perge ancient city. Health & safety is alot diff out there so you are free to touch and climb within reason.

A little difficult if coming by public transport as you will be dropped at the main entrance of the national park, some 8km or so from the main car park. We came by car though, so not an issue. Small admission charge. We unfortunately visited...More

The road to Termessos is hard enough to find and the walk up through the woods passing some low ruins does not prepare you for the sight of the amazing amphitheatre perched high on the mountain overlooking Antalya. The deep cisterns are also quite amazing....More

This trip was on top of my agenda, but it ended short due to our exhaustion. If you are not in very good athletic shape, I suggest Perge and Aspendos, which are better accessible. We visited in hot summer of Antalya. We first visited Karian...More

I always found Termessos so magical. I ended up sitting at the theatre surrounded by the clouds 2 times! Beautiful place.

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.
