APOLLONIA ANCIENT CITY
Follow the goat tracks and dodge the camels to make your way through the village to the ruins of Apollonia. To get to Apollonia one can walk along the Lycian Way from Kas and it's after Aperlae. A grand sight to see at Apollonia is the sprawling necropolis, sprouting from the lower northeast slope of the hill. The ruins of this ancient city are from Roman and Byzantine times. As you walk through the thick shrub, the ruins reveal themselves. It may be the distinctive half-dozen pillar tombs, a conventional sarcophagus with Gothic-type details and an unusual carved tomb on two levels. Upon close examination, one can see the details and the faded inscriptions.
But there is more to see within the acropolis. Wander and explore the Byzantine citadel, peer out from the windows or weave between the archways within the city walls. Go up the steps to the top of the old fort and you can see westwards a well-preserved Byzantine church from the sixth or seventh century. Further west there is a charming little theatre, sitting placidly among the hills. Make your way around the fort to see spectacular views of the inland Lycian Mountains or out to the azure sea. From this point on many travellers then make way back onto the Lycian Way or to visit the ruins of Sura Ancient City, Kas Ancient Theatre and Aperlai Ancient City.
