Description

This tour starts very early, around 4 o'clock in the morning. The pick-up time depends on the location of the hotel and will be confirmed after the reservation of this tour.

Around 7 o'clock you arrive in Antalya and will have 10-15 minutes to recover from the journey. After this little break you drive through the famous resort in Kemer and stop for breakfast in a restaurant with a beautiful panoramic view of the city Kumluca.

After this delicious breakfast the trip continues to the port of Kekova. On the left you will see the clean turquoise water of the Mediterranean Sea and on the right, you pass a small town and the view of the beautiful Taurus Mountains. Once arrived in Kekova you will make an hour-long boat trip to discover the ruins of the sunken city.

The boat is very special because it has a bottom of glass! The boat sails slowly so you can clearly see the remains of many buildings under water. The guide will explain the history of this ancient city on the Lycian coast, so you can imagine what it used to look like before. On the mainland of the island of Kekova you can see the remaining walls and doors of the monumental foundations, one of which is considered a Byzantine church. Many Lycian sarcophagi (large stone coffins) can be seen on the mainland and into the sea.

After an exciting cruise you will go to the old city called Myra. It is very famous because of the Lycian rock tombs and the large amphitheatre. You will have enough time to discover the whole ancient city and incredible Lycian necropolis (cemetery).

The last attractions to visit is the church of Saint Nicholas in Demre. Every year thousands of people from all over the world come to see and touch the marble sarcophagus and they come over to pray at the grave that is considered to be the original tomb of Saint Nicholas. The church was restored a few years ago and now serves as a museum. You will enjoy the special interior, covered by relatively well-preserved frescoes (wall and ceiling paintings).

Close to the church there is a local restaurant where you will enjoy an open lunch buffet. After a lovely lunch the end of the tour will be reached, and you will be driven back to Alanya.

Once you arrive in Alanya everyone will be brought back to the hotel. The bus arrives at 19.00 into the centre of Alanya.
