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.

Yes it was a hike, a rocky one. But so beautiful. Our 5 and 7 year olds did a great job. We ate our packed lunch at the amphitheater. Be sure to take water along. Due to timing we didn't hike up to the firehouse,...More

A visit to Termessos can be a nice one-day trip from Antalya. At least 3-4 hours are needed to fully get the feel of it, it is a vast area. After paying the 5-lira entrance fee you'll drive the 9 km long narrow, winding road...More

Termessos ruins are about 30 km from Antalya. The entrance fee is very cheap (5 Lira), I think not very many people go there. The ruins are at about 1500 meters in altitude, and are very scattered, so it is a combination of seeing ruins...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.
