Create an itinerary including Phaselis
Situated between beaches and mountains completely immersed in greenery, Phaselis presents the crumbling remains of what was once an important harbor for the region. Merchants from Greece, Egypt, and Asian countries used it for commerce from the 7th century BCE. As you walk along its 24 m (79 ft) wide central street, you'll encounter ruins of ancient perfumeries and other stores, plus structures that housed lavish Roman baths, and theaters more than two millennia old. You'll also find forgotten artifacts and sarcophagi here. If the weather's right, you may want to refresh yourself in the sea right next to the ancient city. Our Kemer trip planner makes visiting Phaselis and other Kemer attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Somehow it is not easy to describe that place. Of course it is amazing. In any other country this would be protected from direct approach and serve as a museum, but here you can walk 🚶‍♂️ all over like you live in that ancient city. If you start just a little bit your imagination it is like magic 🎩 travel in time ⏲️. The ordinary and unusual of this place is definitely extremely extraordinary. It is worth going there not only to visit but to spend a few hours just soaking the magic of this place.
  • Great place to hang out with kids. Sandy beach, beautiful views. Downside is that you get to wait in traffic to get in. Especially in summer. Also make sure you have food and plenty of water with you otherwise you screwed since this place does not provide grocery or food places on site.
