  • Knidos Tour

    Although the site is not as impressively restored as Ephesus, the location makes this one of the most amazing antique sites in Turkey. It is helpful to be informed about the site beforehand as much is still to be discovered and there are no guides on site. An informative and clearly spoken audio tour for Knidos is at

    Knidos (needs a car)

    by WanderingFinn Written Mar 8, 2008

    The Knidos tour was one of the two of our favorite destinations by car (the other one was the Pamukkale natural wonder and basins with the Kleopatra pool).

    The whole route gave already much: beautiful scenery, animals, nice villages on the way, nice houses. A narrow hilly/mountain road was also a part of the experience.

    The ancient ruins were nice to see. Also the quick careful swim of mine - I don't know if it was an official place for that (slippery, stones). It was shown to us by a friendly Turkish gendarme who had hitch-hiked to and stopped our car on our way to Knidos :) There is namely a Turkish guard point in Knidos too.

    Rugged but beautiful - fresh air, space to breath A bay where we could cool down by swimming Picture taken to the horizon The road to/from Knidos is this narrow at the end Old ruins of the ancient Knidos; attracts tourists

    Take the car and fall in love with the scenery

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you have a rented car, drive the narrowing road towards Knidos. Already on the way there you see many interesting things like pretty local houses decorated with flowers, tiny fisherman villages, donkeys on the road.

    Sometimes you just have to stop the car in a safe place and go wonder the nature, the landscape, the scenery. Blue sea is glittering in the sunlight which never ends in Turkey. White sailing boats floating still on the blue sea.

    Sometimes you look back and wonder if you really drove that way here. The road is somewhere very narrow, and it climbs up the hills. Nearer Knidos two cars hardly can meet on the road. But people drive slowly there.

    Beautiful view on the way to Knidos Surprise - the donkey wanted to make friends Sometimes the narrow road was winding too A beautiful little village on the way to Knidos

    A trip to Datca and Knidos

    This was what we did the day we?ve been forced to cancel our trip to Rhodes.

    And it was definitely a great substitute.

    The road to Datca and Knidos from Marmaris is wonderful and adventurous.

    Datca is a wonderful small village, with a nice harbor where you can spend a little time drinking a fresh juice and enjoying the view, while Knidos was for us a great surprise with its ancient theater and its harbor on two seas.
