Departure from the pier to see one of beautiful ancient sites of the Mediterranean Coast.

Your tour begins with a visit to the ancient city of Termessos, which is nestled in a stunningly dramatic 1050 meter (3444 feet) plane directly between two steep mountains. About 30 kilometers (18 miles) outside of Antalya’s city center, Termessos has the amazing claim to fame of being the only city that Alexander the Great could not conquer. In 334 BC the warriors of Termessos successfully fought off Alexander and his invading Macedonian army. Likewise, the Romans in 70 BC were forced to accept Termessos not as a part of the Empire, but as an independent ally.

Due to its fantastic natural setting, Termessos is one of the most spectacular ruined cities in Turkey. You will enter the ruins only after a windy climb 9 kilometers (6 miles) up through the beautiful, forested slopes of the Gulluk Mountains. The ruins of this fierce and courageous city are laid before you, in the form of crumbling temples, defensive walls and watchtowers, the Bouleterion, a Temple to Artemis, an odeon used for spectator sports, and a Necropolis scattered with ancient tombs. The most amazing sight, however, is the theatre, which is unforgettable. Relatively small and seating only about 4,000, the Termessos theatre is Hellenistic in style and is built into the side of a steep canyon, looking over the precipitous slopes of Gulluk mountain as they plunge towards the coastal plain. Surveying this promontory, you will appreciate the warriors who once lived and toiled so hard to keep this idyllic, besieged city independent and all their own.

At the end of the program return to the pier to rejoin the ship.
