Well worth a visit. Take the 5 Lira row boat across the river from Dalyan turn left and follow the road for 2km. Children under 12 are free. Adult tickets 10 Lira. Plan to spend 1 to 2 hrs here. No cafe so take plenty of water. You can walk through Kaunos to the next village 1km and find a cafe there.
A must see scene. A piece of world's most precious history lives here. A must see place.
Amazing, when you think How long ago these were carved. But I only saw from a boat on the river and the carved rock tombs felt too far away.
Amazing history and stunning to see in real life. Something that has to be seen while it can. Plus easy to do so from most boats.
Fantastic and very extensive ruins, plan to spend a good few hours here.
