Fethiye Market - Kayakoy Ghost Town
Fethiye Market - Kayakoy
The Fethiye market - Kayakoy ghost village tour is available on Tuesdays only and it begins with a visit to the Tuesday market in Fethiye - one of the biggest in the region, which is known for its leather goods such as shoes and handbags, Turkish carpets, many seasonal fruits and vegetables as well as cheeses, all sorts of oriental spices, oriental delights, olive oil, marinated and smoked olives for any taste. Also there you can buy souvenirs, copies of designer clothes, towels, bed linen of great quality for a very reasonable price. Do not hesitate to bargain on the market because it is part of the Turkish culture and is perceived by traders as a matter of course. We offer a comfortable air-conditioned bus for this trip so fuss no more in overcrowded public transportation.
After visiting the Fethiye market we go to the tomb of Amintas that can be observed from the bay of Fethiye. Amintas was one of the Lycian rulers of Telmessos (the ancient name of Fethiye).
Then we go to Kayakoy ghost town - abandoned Greek settlement. After World War I the ethnic tensions began in Turkey that leaded to forcing of inhabited Kayakoy Greeks to leave their homes and flee to their homeland. Kayakoy ghost town also became famous by the book Louis de Berniere “Birds Without Wings” about the love of Greek girl and Turkish guy. The old name of this village was Levissi and it numbered 6,000 citizens. Many houses and the church are well preserved to our days. In Kayakoy Turkey we will have a barbecue lunch and time to relax in a restaurant with a swimming pool.
