The ancient city of Telmessos, now Fethiye is located on the southern coast of Turkey on the Mediterranean Sea. It is one of Turkey's well-known tourist centres due to its appeal. The city is worth to visit and especially during the summer, when the weather is very favourable for many activities like sightseeing, water sports or just enjoying of its golden beaches.

Fethiye as one of the main tourist centres in Turkey has much to offer to the visitors. Its geographical situation along the Mediterranean coast, the climate conditions and its historical and cultural heritage contrast making of Fethiye a place where one can enjoy of the nature and the history at the same time.

This ancient town originally was occupied by Lycians, and then came the Carians, the Romans, and finally the Ottomans. Although, Telmessos (as was known in the antique times) perhaps had its origins during the Trojan War, but there are no evidence of this fact.

Fethiye is famous for boasting a stunning landscape of rocky cliffs and pine forests meeting with the turquoise sea, as well as golden beaches and exquisite remains of ancient civilizations. The main attractions of Fethiye are the rock tombs carved into the faces of the cliffs by the Lycians, the Lycian Sarcopaghi, the fortress and the roman theatre.
