Your stay will also cover a two day tour of Lycian sites around Dalyan.

Prize courtesy of HolidayMate.Dalyan is a small historical fishing village, and a treasure trove for ancient world explorers.Lycian rock tombs, carved over 2000 years ago, overlook the village. If you follow the steep slope just opposite the town of Dalyan, you can reach these incredible tombs, which are the best examples of such tombs on the Lycian coast. The Kaunos Rock Tombs are the resting place of the kings of Kaunos. The incredible ruins of the city of Kaunos (or Caunos) – the site of a recent archeaological project – are only one kilometre away from Dalyan, and well worth the trip. Ancient Lycia was the playground of Antony and Cleopatra, making it a fascinating and romantic location for a holiday.
