yacht for an afternoon tour of ancient Caunos and Dalyan. We make our
way inland along the reed-lined channels of the Dalyan River delta,
keeping an eye out for turtles, herons and kingfishers. At Caunos we
visit the remains of a theatre, a Byzantine church, a Roman bath house
and an Agora before passing underneath a spectacular set of Lycian rock
tombs, carved into the cliff face above the Dalyan River. Dinner on board

the remains of a sizeable Byzantine settlement and see a beautiful
mosaic in one of the churches. Marvel at the covered walkway and peer
into dwellings and a cistern. Take advantage of the fabulous view from
the summit and sit down with champagne glass in hand whilst watching the
sun set over the sea. Dinner on board

Day 5:
After breakfast, depart for the long cruise past the Seven Capes to
Kalkan. Lunch in the harbour, then enjoy an overland tour to the Lycian
cities of Letoon, Patara and Xanthos. Xanthos was the capital of the
Lycian league, which rose to the height of its splendour in the 10th
century BC. Patara, recognised by scholars as the birthplace of Apollo,
has a magnificent history dating back as far as the 7th-century BC.
Patara was an important place of trade in antiquity and excavations
being carried out today are uncovering more and more of this extensive
site. Letoon was a place of worship for the people of Xanthos and the
most important ruins are those of the Temples of Leto, Apollo and
Artemis. Letoon is cited in many guidebooks as one of the most
delightful sites in Lycia. Dinner on board
