Like all ancient cities in this region, Tlos was first a Lycian city then roman, byzantine and ottoman. It perches on a rock where remains from all those periods are mixed together : the ottoman castle built above the lycian tombs and overhanging a roman theater and a byzantine church.

It is a whole day trip from Finike, through Demre, Kas and Kalkan. Between Kas and Kalkan you may stop at the beautiful small beach of Kaputas. Arriving in Kalkan follow the "Saklikent" signs, today it is a bit hard to find them because they are hidden by works on the road but we can hope works will end next year. After Saklikent you will see road signs to go to Tlos. ( Saklikent is another famous destination where you can hike in a beautiful gorge by a river, but it is difficult to visit both Saklikent and Tlos on the same day).

After the visit of Tlos you can go on the road toward Yakaköy to have lunch at the restaurant "YakaPark", the last one on the right side of the road. A little torrent has been canalized to irrigate the whole restaurant. It is ten minutes only from Tlos, and far more pleasant than the two canteens in Tlos.
