This is a full day tour combined with a boat trip to the most charming coast of Antalya.
After driving along the coast between the Taurus mountains and the Mediterranean, you arrive at Cagagzi Marina or Ucagiz Marina in Demre. Embark in a typical wooden boat for around one and a half hour cruise and take in the ruins of the sunken city in Kekova. The shoreline is strewn with ancient ruins of entire town partly submerged in the water. You may enjoy the opportunity of a swimming break.
Next visit will be to the ancient city of Myra. Myra was a leading city of the Lycian Union and became the capital of Lycia in early Byzantine times. Today this ancient city is famous with Lycian tombs - the largest in all of Turkey. They were carved into the rocks especially for the most senior and wealthy inhabitants of the ancient city. The ruins of the ancient Greco-Roman theater are also well preserved here.
Last visit is Church of St. Nicholas which is short distance from Myra, located in middle of Demre. The church was built in AD 520 on the foundations of an older Christian church where Saint Nicholas had served as a bishop and continued to function until its final abandonment by the Eastern Orthodox Church in 1923. The church is remarkable with its wall frescoes, architecture and religious significance.
