3-in-1 Trip: Alanya Demre Myra Kekova Excursion

Do you remember arcade games played via consoles inserting cassettes in? On these cassettes, titles like “400-in-1” used to be written.

And it means, in only 1 cassette, you can find 400 games to play. Now, consider your one-day journey as a cassette and we will have 3 different “games to play” –places to visit:

Enjoy your travel game labeled as 3-in-1!

Every place we will visit during our well-arranged Alanya Demre Myra Kekova Tour will take you to other dimensions:

Some of them are full of Hellenistic textures thanks to their remains dating back to Roman Empire, while some reflect the Byzantine era that has quite important events and figures for Christianity.

In other words, this tour sprinkles entertainment and a delightful historical-religious lecture into your heart!

Myra: Discover the History through Rocks

For a nice start after departing from Alanya and having a peaceful road trip in our fully-equipped bus, we’ll visit Myra.

Famous for its rock-carved tombs, the Ancient City of Myra and its well-preserved tombs date back to Lycian civilizations.

And these tombs are the best examples of Lycian wooden house architecture adapted into the rock tombs.

Besides their history –we’ll not go deep since our guide is willing to tell the entire story, Myra tombs’ looks are also quite impressive:

They look like pouring down on the slopes of the rocky mountain. So, they create perfect scenery for photography.

In a few minutes’ drive from this city, there is another settlement: Demre. And we’ll head to there to provide you with mind-blowing facts and impressive sights!

Greet Santa’s Soul in Demre

Welcome to Demre, known as the death place of Santa Claus –yes! St. Nicholas, widely known as Santa, was born in Patara (another significant place in Antalya you should definitely see) and came to Myra as a bishop.

Protecting the kids and being respected and loved so, St. Nicholas became Saint after his death, and he is still know as a cute, old man that makes children happy by giving them presents on every New Year.

In Demre, we’ll visit Church of St. Nicholas, which was built after his death and turned into a museum after many years.

In there, we’ll learn some important details about him and get impressed through his warm heart and interesting life.

Also, you’ll come across tourists here who are into learning history just like you, and some tourists who are there for the pilgrimage:

In Orthodox Christianity, Church of St. Nicholas is a sacred place. So, you are at the right place for a religious tour, too…

Embrace an Atlantis-Like Sunken City in a Boat

After visiting religious sites and seeing the landmarks in Demre, we will have a fascinating sea trip on a grand boat with a glass ground.

Thanks to this special design, we’ll be able to explore the sunken city, which is located nearby the island of Kekova, in depths of Mediterranean Sea!

Remains in the depths creating a nuance with crystal-clear waters and impressing pieces of ancient buildings will feast your eyes. And our guide’s information will feast your brain, while you’re learning the importance and history of Kekova.

Then, this combination will turn into a travel memory and remain for a long time in your head!

To sum up, our daily Alanya Demre Myra Kekova Tour is full of impressive places and moments that will make you adore Antalya even more.

Reviews About Alanya Demre Myra Kekova Tour

I liked Demre Mira very much – we saw, like, everything. We were told about religious aspects in the church of St. Nicholas. We sailed on a boat, looking for traces of an old civilization around the island of Kekova. In Mir, I walked through the ancient ruins. Were in the amphitheater – the scale, of course, is surprising. A very enjoyable trip – thank you for this tour.

A wonderful excursion, we went in the end of August. A very comfortable trip – the driver is great. The atmosphere in the church is simply incredible – I wanted to stay there and not go anywhere. I was surprised how well the basilica itself was preserved – you can see the careful approach of the Turkish government to the preservation of cultural heritage. The Lycian tombs were impressive – and there is nothing to add. I liked the boat trip very much, we even saw fragments of amphorae through the transparent bottom. Definitely recommend to everyone who has not been to Demre yet

Demre is not only historical, but it has also a rich religious culture, not everyone in a Muslim country expecting to visit a Christian church. The Church of St. Nicholas, is a very beautiful and peaceful place where everyone wants to be alone with themselves. The walk refreshed our heads and fuled us with excitement. Great excursion – we recommend it to everyone!
