You follow the Lycian Way winding south from Faralya through thyme and oleander rich terraces to Kabak Gorge on the flank of Baba Dag mountain.

Day 6 - In Patara

Patara was a giant among Roman trading ports, as big as Ephesus, though today only partially excavated. Half buried by giant sand dunes, you can see broken mosaics, pottery shards and columns scattered between bath houses, theatres and marble streets. Just beyond the ruins is an amazing 18km long beach, perfect for picnics and swimming.
