Car: not necessary
Kas is located 200 kilometers west of Antalya and was founded in the 4th century BC as the site of the ancient Greek town of Antiphellos. It is located between the Mediterranean and the Taurus mountains. This region known as Lycia is the homeland of the Lycian civilisation. Now only rocks and tombs, sarcophagi and the amphitheatre are left but the charm of the town remains. It is a pleasurable experience to wander through the streets, stopping to examine the tourism shops that offer Turkish handicrafts, leather goods, copper and silver items, cotton clothing and the inevitable hand made carpets. Kas has a population of around 8,000 people and is a highly desirable location to spend your vacation. It has a wide variety of restaurants and cafes to choose from at very reasonable prices. There is an active night life if that is your want, but should you choose more cultural activities, the ancient sites of Myra, Demre and the Xantos valley are within easy driving distance.
