Discover lycian coast in 9 hours


Southwest Turkey, along and inland from the popular "Turquoise Coast", was home to the ancient Lycians who were one of the most enigmatic people of antiquity. Phaselis was a breathtaking city of this unspoiled land of Lycia.

The Church of St. Nicholas in ancient Myra (modern Kale or Demre) is a ruined Byzantine church containing the tomb of St. Nicholas of Myra (the inspiration for Santa Claus), as well as many fine mosaics and murals.

On this tour we will take a drive from Antalya to Kemer direction which is 50 km (28 miles) far with a picturesque road along the med coast and taurus mountains.

We will drive more west along the med coast and arrive todays Demre where the church of St. Nicholas in ancient Myra was built and see also the amazing rock tumbs in Myra Open Air Museum.

We will drive the same road back to Antalya with unforgottable coastal views of the lycian way.
