Turkish Coast: Bodrum to Marmaris
This guide book - the only general guide in English to cover this part of the Turkish Coast in detail - is an ideal companion for motorists who want to tour the Bodrum and Marmaris peninsulas by car, as well as those planning a holiday walking in Turkey.

o getting there and getting about

o recommended accommodation, campsites and restaurants

o practicalities A-Z

o history

o 15 main walks with many variations, all with large-scale topo maps

o fold-out area map

o detailed town plans showing locations of all sights, recommended hotels and restaurants

o plans of historical sites

o many 'feature' panels

A Turkish poet once described the area between Bodrum and Marmaris as 'terrifyingly' beautiful. Silver-leaved olive groves and wild inland mountains yield up the stone remains of ancient civilisations. The dazzling multi-coloured bays, framed by fissured cliffs and collared with golden sand, are the stuff of dreams.

This is one of a trilogy of 'Complete' guides to the Turkish Coast; moving east, they explore first the area between Dalyan and Kas and then Demre and Antalya. All the authors have been visiting Turkey for many years, writing general and walking guides. Dean Livesley was one of the original developers of the famous Lycian Way, Turkey's first long-distance footpath, and a key feature of this book is coverage of the Lycian Way as day walks, with full transport details.

Focussing on Bodrum and the Bodrum Peninsula, the guide travels round the Gulf of Gokova to Marmaris and the Resadiye and Bozburun peninsulas. Also included are full details of excursions to Pamukkale/Hierapolis, Aphrodisias and Ephesus.

Area map covering the entire south coast, from the Bodrum Peninsula in the west to the Gulf of Antalya in the east; 20 main walks (each illustrated with 1:50,000 topo maps); plans of Bodrum, Marmaris, Datça; site plans of Knidos, Pamukkale/Hierapolis, Aphrodisias, Ephesus. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily.
