Xanthos, Saklikent and Patara

One of the best trips to explore the ancient cities of Lycia. Our day starts at 9:15 in Kalkan and we are going to visit Xanthos, the first capital of the republic in the world and of the Lycian League. Our professional guide will tell the story of the freedom loving people in this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Xanthos has well-preserved ruins and monumental tombs, among lovely scenery. After exploring Xanthos, a short visit to C.W.A. gives you an opportunity to learn about the history and craftmanship of the famous Turkish carpets.
