DEMRE MYRA KEKOVA TRIP FROM ANTALYA
With your English-speaking guide, you will travel to Demre, an important agricultural town on the Mediterranean coast of Anatolia.
The journey takes around 2 hours. Demre is the modern counterpart of the ancient town of Myra, once part of the historic region of Lycia. Visit the ruins of Myra and see the famous Lycian monuments. These include a superb collection of rock-cut tombs, some of which were once brightly painted.
Myra also has an impressive 2nd-century theatre, with many carvings and inscriptions still visible. You will also visit the Church of St. Nicholas. This ruined Byzantine church contains the tomb of Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, who lived in the 5th century AD. This much-loved priest was famous for his healing powers and the anonymous gifts he gave those in need.
After lunch, you will take a boat to picturesque Kekova Island, once a notorious haunt of pirates. As you sail over the calm waters, you will see the remains of buildings and walls of an ancient town destroyed by earthquakes about 2000 years ago.
Your tour also takes in the ancient city of Teimiussa near today's village of Ucagiz. You will see a necropolis (cemetery) with many Sarcophaga, mainly from the Roman period. You will be dropped back at your hotel in Antalya at the end of the excursion.
