Alanya to Olympos | Road Trip | History of Olympos

Alanya days over and the new destination is Olympos for us.

It takes 3 and a half hour to get Olympos from Alanya but we are slow travellers. It took 5 hours to get there. We have passed big city Antalya.

Olympos was the most important port of Lycian history. It is also a delightful spot for pirates at that time and the Roman Emperor. The City of Olympos shined in the 6th and 7th centuries. And then the city became too crowded and earthquakes make the city undesired anymore. Most of the ruins we see nowadays have remained from Byzantium.

We slept one night at the Likya Evleri hotel. You have to wait for the next episode to see details of Likya Evleri.
