“Lovely ruins, must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

I was debating whether we should see the Fethiye ruins or Dalyan's; I decided to just do both. Dalyan's ruins have less erosion and no vandalism (that I could see) due to their location on a near vertical cliff. However, you can't get close to them. Most view the ruins from the promenade alongside the river on the Dalyan side. You can hire a boat or floating taxi to take you across the river. The closest one can get is the bottom of the cliff, which has a terrible view since the ruins are so far above your head. If you look at people's pictures, you can still take nice pictures. Neither city gives any information about them, but it should be in your guide book. Dalyan's Lycian ruins are beautifully lit at night to. I think it's must see, because its a uniquely southwestern Turkish site.

“Stunning”

What a way to unwind, sitting at the rivers edge, drinking wine, eating good food and having these on the opposite bank!

“Have to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

The rock tombs can be seen from most of the bars and restaurants on the Dalyan river.Going by boat is an experience and well worth it.Unfortuately during the day there are a lot of day trippers so the beach can get crowded.If you can, see the tombs at night when they are lit up, beautiful.

“Imposing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

T.hey just ARE. At sunrise, midday or sunset, or midnight. Hypnotic. Well worth dining at the variety of restaurants opposite each evening of the week to view them, their presence defines Dalyan.
