In 386 BC, the city was dominated by the Persians, and in 192 BC it was owned by the Romans. In 1522 it was under the sovereignty of the Ottoman Empire.

2 - Fethiye
Located between Fethiye and Antalya, Teke peninsula is the place where Lycia, the country of lights of ancient times, is located. Fethiye is the city which the Lycians call Telmessos. After the Lycians, the Persians, then Romans  dominated  Fethiye; and finally, it was dominated by the Ottoman Empire. Fethiye, which we use today, took its name from the pilot of plane flying in 1913 from Damascus to Teberiye, Fethi, who was one of our first pilots. It is almost impossible to count the places to visit. But the first thing that comes to mind is the Dead Sea. One of the most beautiful beaches in the world, the light and the land of the sun, the magnificence of the turquoise and the view of the human being. We're telling about the Dead Sea. That's why it has a world-famous beauty.

Belcekız beach is one of the precious beaches of the region. It is a very good alternative to the sea with its sand and is one of the most visited coasts. The Valley of the Butterflies will be a stop which is impossible to forget. The valley of the butterflies on the slopes of Babadag, famous for its endemic plants; is one of the 10 most beautiful places of Turkey. The numerous butterfly species it hosts cause her to get that name. Kabak Bay is one of the precious stops of Fethiye. The bay, which stretches for 200 meters, has a location accessible by private tour boats. That is why a hidden paradise. Finally, let's talk about Kayakoy. Kayakoy, an old Greek village, sheds light on Fethiye's history. The village, which was abandoned in 1923, remained obscured by its houses, churches, narrow streets and magnificent trees. That's why people are wandering around here. More beautiful nature, historical relic and beach waiting for you in Fethiye. Don't be late to make your trip schedule and get on the road.
