Fethiye is a port city built during the Lycian era, the famous Lycian trails pass here, and in the city center there are huge columns of tombs carved into the rocks in the 5th century BC, traces of Ancient Greece and the Middle Ages, something that was saved later century and despite earthquakes.
To learn more about the history of the city, you can book a sightseeing tour of Fethiye. It passes in one breath, very dynamically, you will visit the ruins of a medieval castle, the tombs of Lycia, the remains of the Roman amphitheater and visit the observation deck, where the whole city is perfectly visible.
Now it is a respectable resort town, more like a cozy Greek village, but the oriental flavor, the widespread mention of Ataturk, Turkish flags will not let you forget that you are in Turkey. The main part of the inhabitants is the Turkish diaspora, since in 1915 there were mass migrations of Greeks to their historical homeland.
But the British diaspora has chosen this heavenly place for the last twenty years, and now it makes up ⅓ of the population. In this regard, not only five-star luxury hotels are popular here, but also apartments, villas for rent with a swimming pool, adjacent territory and other amenities.
Fethiye is located 40 km from Dalaman International Airport. The road from the airport takes no more than an hour along a picturesque road that is simply immersed in the mountains. And indeed, everywhere around the city there are mountains, mountains and again mountains, which are covered with greenery, vineyards and fruit trees.
But this is also due to the fact that the construction of houses higher than 4 floors is prohibited in the city, so as not to cover the stunning landscapes of the area. Smart, isn’t it.
