The Perfect Blue Cruise Port Marmaris
Beginning from the centrum, guests of Marmaris can stroll around the harbor. The layout of the bay and harbor is like no other coastal city in the Mediterranean of Turkey where shopping, both local and touristic; the restaurants, bars, night clubs and beaches are all parallel to each other.
The prime centre revolves around the Marmaris castle hilltop known as the ‘Old Town’. From this point onward where you wish to go and see is all within very short walking distances. The promenade is beautiful and draws many – from walkers, joggers, cyclists to children on the beach.
As a central location to gulet cruise, there are many different variations of itineraries to choose from. Heading to the east you will have the choice of visiting some history along with the unique culture found in that part of the Turkish Mediterranean – inclusive of the cuisine.
Places such as the ancient cities of Caunos in Dalyan can be reached from your gulet by a local boat ride along the Dalyan river. Going further into the Eastern Mediterranean region of Antalya province, a must-see is the ancient city of Simena, now-a-days known as Kekova where the sunken underwater city still remains with the ruins from the Lycian civilization.
There is plenty to do in and around the Marmaris region. While some debate on
whether Marmaris resides in the Mediterranean or Aegean, it is actually on the border between the two seas. While the city is more on the Mediterranean side, the fascinating villages of Marmaris are lined along the shores of the Aegean sea.
Marmaris Museum serves in Marmaris Castle, which is a historical place.
The castle was built on a peninsula behind Marmaris Harbor, overlooking the sea. The first information about Marmaris Castle dates back to BC.
The historian Herodotus from Halicarnassus (Bodrum), who lived between 490-425, gives. Herodotus was the first to build the castle in BC. 3. He says it was made in the thousandth. Physkos (Marmaris), which was a Carian City in this period, is a crossing point between the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean as it is today. The port of the city has maintained its importance throughout the ages with the trade routes opening to Rhodes and Egypt.
