Tour Itinerary

After leaving your hotel we will take you for the famous weekly bazaar in Fethiye with hundreds of stalls, where you will be able to bargain with local traders coming with their goods from surrounding villages. Textiles, shoes, bags, spices, souvenirs and fresh local products are just some examples you’ll get to come across. Free time for shopping on the bazaar is included, as well. Following the bazaar, there is more shopping at two additional points. In the biggest gold center in Fethiye, you will be amazed by the workmanship quality and prices of masterpieces within the jewelry, that Turkey is proud of. In Turkey we love sweets, let’s try and buy some of them at the Turkish Delight Factory. Then, you will move to the real, ‘ghost town’.  Kayakoy is actually a town built on the place of the ancient Carmylessus in XVIII century. It had over 1000 houses, 14 chapels, two churches, two schools, forge and halfway house. After the Turkish-Greek war, one time in the year of 1923 the history of Kayakoy ended. All Orthodox Greeks could only take what they could carry in their hands and they were all departed to Greece leaving hundreds of empty buildings.
