Daily Itinerary



Marmaris – Embarkation

Boarding starts at 3:30 pm at Marmaris Harbor. On this first day, service starts with dinner on the boat and an overnight stay in Marmaris. Marmaris which was built upon one of the antique Karian cities called Phyckos has been under the rule of many different civilizations. The most valuable work of art that you can see today is Marmaris Castle dating back to 1577. There is also a mosque and an 8-room caravanserai covered with arches from the Ottoman period. Ruins of the antique times lie on Asar Hill, a small, low hill located on the northern side of the city. (D)
