A booming clifftop resort
This booming clifftop resort town on the South-Western Turkish coast keeps its good looks and fine weather well into October. It's even said that the original Saint Nicholas - aka Santa Claus - was from around here. That comes as no surprise from an ancient city steeped in history, courtesy of its Lycian, Pamphylian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman influences. For a lesson in ancient civilisation, just take your pick.
