Duration: 4 hours

Fethiye was one of the most important city in Lycia. You can see the evidence around displaying as ruins telling long history of the city.
Its
beautiful natural
harbour is very popular for boats catering to an extensive selection of excursions. Once you are there you will understand why Fethiye has captured the eyes and the hearts of so many
travelers. It is a little Turkish coastal town with enormous charms that make you want to come back again and
again.

After your cruise disembarks and everyone gathers all together at your port of call, our professional guide will bring you to see the ancient Telmessos theatre which is located opposite to Fethiye harbour at Fethiye town centre. This typical Roman type theatre was built in 2nd century on the remains of a Greek style previous one. The site was
excavated
by the Fethiye Archaeology Museum in 1993 and a restoration project was made to renovate the theatre and the stage.

After the theatre, you will board your air-conditioned minivan and head up to Fethiye Rock Tombs, one of the most beautiful landmarks of Fethiye. Climb up to the main Lycian Rock Tomb and get a chance to see the tomb of Amyntas, an Ionic temple façade carved in the sheer rock face in 350 BC. There is also a great view point up there where you can witness amazing views of Fethiye town, the marina and the whole of the bay. After a bit of a climbing adventure, you can always reward yourself with an icy cold Efes Pilsen.

When you come back down into Fethiye.
Next destination will be a Kayakoy or ghost town where all the Greek houses and property are left empty many years ago. This town has been standing throughout a lot of incidents including the loss of the First World War, along with
the end of the Ottoman Empire and the Greek attempting to
occupy the Anatolian region and a series of earthquakes.

All these combinations have resulted in the abandon of
Kayakoy. This is what the modern world would call "Ethnical cleansing". Greek Christian citizens were deported to go back to Greece while Muslim Turks were forced to go to Turkey. Most
of the returning Turks did not want to settle in Kayakoy where the Christianity was still evident.
And those who decided to stay
had to leave when the earthquake hit it. There are about 250-350 homes now sit empty and mostly roofless because of the wind. You can still see that the village was gaining the water from the
fountains and cisterns a.
The town gives a more haunting atmosphere with
two abandoned Greek Orthodox churches, which actually do make the name Ghost Town most suitable for this place.
Visit a
private museum there and find more information about the story of the town.

We will walk in the city of Ghost Village and discover the life and history of a village that survived evacuation and an earthquake here.
After the ghost town, we will drive you back to Fethiye town and drop you off at Fethiye old town. There you can wander around
nice little souvenir shops before heading back to your cruise.
