Lycian Way Trekking Tours
Lycian Way routes were built like a spider web in order to provide communication, transportation and trade between ancient cities.Thanks to these roads, the transportation of ancient cities between each other, trade and transportation from port cities to inland and highlands, highlands were provided.These roads have been the transportation network of a civilisation that has continued for thousands of years.
Dozens of cities have been established here, experiences, stories, stories, what laments, what kings, what tomb masters have come and gone. The lines in the Lycian Poem actually tell us everything...
"Don't worry if you can't find me, you'll find my things.
You'll find the stones I cut, the roads I paved, the sculptures I carved.
And you will see that our fingerprints will touch each other from thousands of years away...
