We’ll leave the port of Marmaris by bus and drive for an hour and a half to the village of Dalyan, situated on the floodplains of Köyceğiz Lake. We can admire the ancient Lycian tombs amazingly carved into the surrounding cliff face.

The largest and grandest tomb was built for King Dionysius. Smaller tombs nearby were for the noble and wealthy. Small pits dug into the rock wall were used by ordinary people and slaves.

Next, our shore excursion takes a short boat trip to the nearby trading city of Kaunos. Named after King Kaunos, the grandson of Apollo, the city was an important sea port. Our tour will investigate the ruins and remains, some of which date back from the 4th century BC. We’ll see a temple, a Byzantine church and other tombs cut into rock faces. At the foot of an acropolis, we’ll see a theatre with both Hellenistic and Roman features.

At the end of the excursion we return to Dalyan, where we wait for the bus to take us to back to port.
