Itinerary

This is a private tour designed only for you and your loved ones.

Your full-day tour begins with us taking you from your accommodation and continues with a trip from Antalya to Kekova. Kekova not only is a home for ruins from antiquity, it is one of the area’s most attractive picturesque yachting destinations.

We will take a boat trip to the extraordinary underwater ruins of the sunken city of Simena and visit the amazing Lycian necropolis at Teimiussa. Here we will have some time for a swim or snorkeling; so we recommend you to bring your bathing suit and towel. The boat trip takes about 1.5-2 hours.

Our journey continues with a short drive to Myra. fAfter we enjoy a delicious lunch, we will explore the area that was one of the 6 prominent cities of Lycia.

The ruins of the Roman and Lycian town are mostly covered by alluvial silts, although the Acropolis, the Roman Theater, and Roman Baths have been excavated.

In 141, the theater was destroyed by an earthquake, but it was rebuilt afterwards. There are 2 necropolises at the site, both Lycian rock tombs with temple faces carved into the vertical cliffs at Myra.

Next we will pay a visit to the Church of St. Nicholas. St. Nicholas of Myra was the Eastern Orthodox Bishop of Myra in the 4th century and later became world-famous as Father Christmas and Santa Claus. The church has been restored and now open for its visitors.

After visiting the church we will return to Antalya and drop you to your hotels.
