Relax on beautiful beaches surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of mountains, gorges and forests; tread in the footsteps of Alexander the Great, through the magnificent ruins of great Lycian cities.
Fethiye is a lively Turkish market town situated in the centre of the Turquoise Coast, the southwestern corner of Turkey. The City occupies the site of the ancient Lycian city of Telmessos, close to the quay is the sprawling Hellenistic theatre and a number of Lycian rock tombs cover the hillside above the bazaar. A short walk will take you to the Amyntas Tomb with its two Ionic columns. On the hillside behind the harbour are the remains of a medieval fortress, the Knight's Castle. Undoubtedly a city filled with history but you will also receive a hearty welcome from the local people and be warmed by their hospitality.
The town, on the turquoise coast of Turkey has grown from a modest trading port/fishing village and fertile tomato growing area to a rapidly expanding vibrant town and tourist holiday destination which offers a variety of activities for its visitors, from those with an interest in history and nature to those looking for sun, sea and great food.
