The Lycian Way: Ancient Path of the Mediterranean

Travellers have been walking the Lycian Way along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey since the late bronze Age. Since then the Persians and Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, pirates and Turks have all laid claim to it, often more than once. The Lycian Way is about 540 km long and passes through historic sites, towns and amphitheatres, such as Xanthos, Patara, Myra, Pinara, Tlos, Olympos and Phaselis. In 1999 Kate Clow organised the road markings so that the Lycian Way could be listed as a World Heritage Site due its cultural significance, consequently becoming a key tourist destination.
