Located in Southwestern Turkey, Olympos is thought to have been established during the the 4th century BC. With its strategic seaside location in addition to being in a river valley, it was an important maritime trade city, even falling to pirates during Roman times. Today, Olympos is a low-key tourist site to visit, with bed-and-breakfast-type pensions scattered throughout the mountains for those who want to visit less crowded sites.
