Trip Planner: Europe / Turkey / Turkish Mediterranean Coast / Antalya Province / Antalya / Termessos Ruins
Surrounded by dense pine forests and a multitude of wild plants, Termessos Ruins represents one of the best-preserved ancient cities in Turkey. Notable architectural structures of the city include the agora and the Roman theatre, which are joined by a large arched entrance. Look for the five small rooms under the stage where wild animals were kept before being taken into the arena. A king's road with wide porticoes winds within the city walls, and you'll see the remains of a gymnasium with an internal courtyard, an odeon, six temples of varying sizes, towers, Hadrian's gate, and the necropolis with hundreds of sarcophagi.

Prepare for uphill hiking and totally unrestored structures but man is that theater at the top amazing. No joke you'll be parkouring across fallen stones all over the place but it's so worth it to... more »
This place is a must. After walking upward for around 15 minutes you'll have a wonderful view, the site it's big. Both the ancient theater and the view from it are very impressive.
Beautiful views. Trail up is easy, half way is shaded by trees. Almost no wind thus hot and humid (less than 1km from parking). Must see.
