DALYAN & KAUNOS

 

Цена: € 36 на възрастен, € 25 на дете

 

Duration: full day, lunch included

 

Leaving the port of Marmaris, a picturesque drive of approximately 1.5 hours brings us to Dalyan (which means “fishing-weir” in Turkish), a small, beautiful village situated at the delta of the Köyceğiz Lake. Here you can explore a maze of waterways in specially adapted motorboats, which are sheltered in case of rainfall. High above the river’s sheer cliffs are the weathered façades of Lycian tombs cut from rock, circa 400 BC. The largest of the tombs was originally built for King Dionysus, the fabled monarch ; the relatively small tombs that surround King Dionysus’s resting place were intended for the noble and rich of the time, while the small pits carved in the cliff were for ordinary people and slaves. Close by are the ruins of the ancient trading city of Kaunos, which is reached with a 15-minute trip by motorboat. This once vibrant ancient city was named after Prince Kaunos, the son of King Miletos. Today, you can see the outlines of buildings that include a theatre, a large rectangular building that may have been a temple, a Byzantine church, and more rock-hewn tombs. Finally we return to Dalyan for shopping opportunities in exclusive carpet and/or jewellery stores, which offer stunning examples of local craftsmanship. Lunch included

Please note: this tour is not advised for elderly people or guests with disability problems.
