The site is not the easiest to traverse, most of the buildings being ruinous, so that you have to scramble over the fallen stonework. The best-preserved structure is the theatre, which we did not have time to visit. Perhaps the greatest joy is in travelling...More

A visit to Lara Beach or Antalya would be lacking without a visit to this historical site which is just up the road. Just wandering about inside the amphitheatre and climbing the stone steps/seating to the top is worth the admission price alone.

We asked our hostel owner to suggest a few non-touristy places and this was one of the places he suggested. It is a little difficult to get here, but the drive is pretty scenic. The village of Selge is very different from all the cities...More

After some kilometers on a minor road among the mountains with almost no signs you arrive to the scattered village of Selge. From there you can see all around a lot of pieces of stones which are the ruins of the antique Selge. The site...More

While the theater is really the only ruins to see, the drive from the sea thru the mountains to the village is unexpectedly stunning. The fields, fairy chimneys, rock formations. There is a tea/gozleme house just as you enter Altikaya/Selge. A charming lady with an...More

the road that leads to the ruins offers breathtaking views over the national park and the canyon. The amphitheatre is very well preserved, with no crowds and amazing views. You can also have a real experience of turkish countryside life
