Always a deep emotion to understand that two thousand - and more - years ago people were able to design and build such extraordinary towns paved in marble and with so many sculptures temples and constructions. And all this around an harbour and a port for trades and the wellbeing of the people. A long trip by bus and just... More

Wonderful ruins on the convergence point of Aegean and Mediterranean seas. Entrance fee is 3 Euro. Be careful for the road from Palamutbükü since it is so narrow at some places.

We've been twice now. Once via one of the many boat trips that leave from Datca and once via car. Enjoyed both visits as you always see something different. Can't remember how much entrance is but as with most Turkish attractions the tickets are lovely and the kids like to keep them. Lots to see with good information panels in... More

Whilst Knidos is not as impressive as Ephesus, it certainly beats it in term of the location, overlooking the encounter of the Mediterranean and Aegean seas. The ruins are in reasonable state and the site is till been developed. The road from Datça is a bit narrow and twisty, so be careful driving there.
