Discover Magnificent Marmaris
Traditional yet contemporary, when you visit Marmaris you’ll feel its undeniable energy.
A stroll along the Marmaris Marina will have you fully immersed in the city’s culture. A true social hub, you’ll be tapping your toes along with local musicians as you admire the pier’s many yachts and shops where you can pick up traditional Turkish souvenirs like the nazar boncugu (evil eye), an ancient talisman designed to ward off bad luck.
In the historic Old Town, stone houses line narrow cobblestoned streets and you’ll find the city’s last remaining traditional buildings. Catch the finest views of the azure waters of Marmaris Bay from the Marmaris Castle & Museum. An ideal spot for history buffs—the castle was rebuilt by Suley the Magnificent to host his troops during his campaign for the Greek Island of Rhodes in 1522.
Satisfy your appetite with the finest Turkish cuisine at any of the city’s “Lokanta’s” (restaurant). Be sure to try the gözleme, a stuffed flatbread that is a hit among locals and visitors alike.
The perfect place for night owls, a stop into one of the meyhanes (taverns) that line the famed “Bar Street” will have you dancing to traditional Turkish music right back to the ship as you depart.
