Very pleasurable trip into the past of the Greek and Roman Civilizations here in Turkey. Paths were well labeled and signage gave great History of the Structures and Region. A Lot of walking but well worth it. . .

There are tons of ruins making up a town or village. Best thing is that you can find ruins scattered ouside the main settlement where few people go. You’ll get a better experience without IKEA arrows here. There are also a nice beach and cliffs...More
