About this tour

A day visiting and exploring the ancient ruins of the region, dating back to the Lycian Empire. These great cities of the Lycian Federation include Letoon for its religious leadership and Xanthos for being the capital of the federation. Following lunch, you will head to a quiet beach for relaxation in the beautiful Turkish weather.

A day of historical fascination will begin with pickups from your hotel at 9:00. You start off by visiting the ancient city of Letoon. This city was never fully occupied but all evidence that has been uncovered suggests that it was primarily a center for religious worship. The location was a place of religion predating the Greek culture dating back to the beginning of the Lycian Empire.

Continuing on to the ancient capital of the Lycian Federation, here many artifacts were excavated and dated back to the 8th century. Xanthos is an ancient Lycian city that originated during the Hittite era, later to be conquered by the Greek and Persian empires. The Lycian population created a center for both culture and commerce here at Xanthos. Today the ruins are a popular tourist stop for both their stunning preserved ruins, and fantastic view but they also hold the mystery of what happened to the city.

Many theories tell of different people destroying it with some saying it was a natural disaster, however, there is no record of what happened. All we have today is the stories left behind by those who built this fantastic city. You will have lunch at a nearby restaurant where you will try traditional Turkish food.

The afternoon you will head to the famous Patara Beach, where you can relax in the beautiful Turkish weather or swim on the crystal-clear water of the Aegean Sea. You will return to your hotel at roughly 17:30
