Strange combination, but worth to see it. If you like individual tours: The distance from St. Nicholas church is about 2 km. The same entrance fee - 20 TL (0 with Museum Pass). This two sightseeings need only 2,5 h, including Myra's walking back and...More

Of ancient Myra, little remains now but the theatre and the rock-cut tombs, but these are exceptional. The theatre is of Roman type, very well-preserved, and with a fantastic collection of theatre mask friezes, although not in situ. The later Church has wonderful frescoes.

Very few visitors. Stunning rock tombs and a fantastic amphitheatre, check out the 'posh' seats with fish & animal arm rests! Climb to the top and feel the breeze.

We went in July and it was quite busy - it's part of a tour with the church of St Nicholas I assume. It's a fascinating site. I'm used to seeing Roman sites in the UK that are one or two courses of stonework high,...More
