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.

The amphitheatre and rock tombs are well worth the visit. All on a scale that can be understood and taken in, the site reaches way back to the 2nd century BC and has so much history. Evocative and impressive. We shared an audio headset between our party, and it was worth doing.

This place is really historic including different structures like the amphitheatre and the caves on the rock. You are not allowed to climb the steep rock wall but you can walk inside the theatre and try the acoustics standing in the middle. With all the climbing and the views this is a great place for families. You can spend time... More

People nearby want you to park on their properties, which we did. I was a little concerned about my rental car being secure, but experienced no problem. The site is amazing. You can explore the amphitheater; and the tombs and a few scattered artifacts are amazing. Don't expect much in the way of facilities. Be prepared to pay for water... More

Myra, an archeological site, mostly Roman. The most impressive features were its amphitheater and, especially, the necropolis of tombs, some colonnaded, carved into the cliff. You get an opportunity to sit in the actual seats reserved for the elite and compare them to the seats for the common Myrans.

The whole region is great to explore Myra is well worth a visit for its Incredible Lycian tombs and equally impressive Roman amphitheatre.

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, just foundations really. So you can imagine my delight at a whole theatre, with walls... More

This visit doesn't take much time but is really worth the effort. The tombs are among the best around and you can find several carvings on several of them. The Roman theater is equally impressive and in very good condition. The best was the excellent condition of the many carved theater masks. Well preserved details.
