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.

A special place for the warm water for a bath or just entertainment , all in one which we call a stadium .Secure enough for protection from any outsider to cause any harm too.

an amazing walk/hike to the ruins. beautiful views and discovery of an ancient civilization and how they lived . The amphitheater was breath taking. The walk is well worth it and great exercise.

This is an extraordinary site, quite unlike the order and civilisation of Aspendos or Perge, for instance; both for its ambitious, almost brutal architecture - mindboggling that people built such...

Beautiful place! Have to visit. Ruins, views, history - great! Possible to go on taxi. Recommend to visit via route by maps.me or else navigator. Starting from the tombs to city, bath, school, church, other buildings and finish - awesome antique amphitheater. All visit takes 3-5 hours.
If you like ruins then this place has to be on your bucket list. While it was unconquered by Alexander The Great, nature is winning that battle. Most of it is in ruins, but they are impressive. It's a long winding road up to the parking spot (but on a good road) and then a 45 min steep uphill climb, so wear good trainers. But what waits is well worth it. Lots to see (signposts in the site could be better) so allow lots of time. Take food and lots of water.
Breathtaking hike through the ruins to the summit! The ancient city features a magnificent theater, the monumental tomb of Alcetas (one of Alexander’s generals), Hellenistic Defenses, multiple temples, as well as several magnificent necropolises. It provides one of the most stunning examples of ancient cities in Western Turkey. I suggest around 3-4 hours to explore the site and hike the trails fully. Even if you are not a huge history buff, this is a fantastic hiking spot with a scenic view of the Turkish countryside.
There is a serious hike up a very steep and rough path to get to the main part of the site but the necropolis to the left of the car park is worth the visit on its own. It is a beautiful location with breathtaking views.
Most amazing experience with endless ruins sprawling across mountains, partly hidden by forest and debris. Sad and magnificent, how grand the city once was. The area is worth several days of exploration, not hours. Take water and snacks with you and leave no trace behind, be better than others
