Marmaris has a history dating back to 3000 B.C. The Ionians were the first to settle here captured by its beauty and the versatile position of Marmaris port to carry on trade. It was named as Physcos by the Ionians which was later invaded by Alexander the Great in 4th century B.C.
Later in 1552, the Ottoman Emperor, Kanuni Süleyman captured the city and changed the name to "Marmaris".
Marmaris has transformed tremendously from once being a small Turkish fishing town to a popular tourist destination thanks to its natural harbours with calm, crystal clear waters facilitating the development of splendid yachting and diving resorts and the picturesque coastline with rugged mountains and pine trees.
The area around the harbour offers a taste of character of the old town, overlooked by the ancient castle, which is now a museum. The Netsel marina is reached by a small footbridge, and is one of the largest and most modern in Turkey, the hangout of the jetset, who moor their luxury yachts here.
Other interesting sites to see are the biblical city of Efes and Pamukkale (a natural formation of rocks and thermal pools and considered as the 8th wonder of the world).
Marmaris has some of the most attractive beaches in the Aegean region of the East Mediterranean. Marmaris is also a shopping Mecca. The small shopping centre houses up market boutiques and intimate restaurants, however the real bargains are to be found in the bazaar area, with hundreds of small shops offering the usual Turkish wares - clothing, leather, jewellery and handcrafts.
Lined with palms, the seafront promenade has a typical Mediterranean feel and is a great place for an evening meal or leisurely stroll. Shops, bars and restaurants line the streets, each offering something more attractive than the last.
Rhodes is the largest island Dodecanese islands and the second largest Greek island. Rhodes is situated in the Eastern Aegean Sea, 11 miles to the west of Turkey, and enjoys an average of 320 days of blissful sunshine a year. Rhodes has beautiful and diversified natural environment. Rhodes Island is the most traveled of the 12 Dodecanese islands, enticing tourists with its gorgeous land, long, beautiful beaches and fascinating history.
The island of Rhodes was an important economic center in the ancient world and was home to one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World - the Colossus of Rhodes, a huge statue that that stood over two thousand years ago at the entrance to the harbour and was destroyed by an earthquake in 237 BC.
The capital city, Rhodes Town, is situated at the northern tip of the island. Rhodes Town has a rich history and many places of interest, including the remnants of the 14th century occupation by the Knights of St John. In 1988 the Medieval Town of Rhodes was designated as a World Heritage City.
15 Jul 2011Marmaris to Rhodes PM Ferry
Upon checking in we found the ferry company had no record of our reservation in their computer and we were not listed on the paid passenger list. The confirmation numbers meant nothing to the person checking us in. We were a bit concerned that we had been scammed. Upon presenting our printed reservation all went well - other than the delay. (We had to wait for everyone else to be processed first.) Make sure you take a copy of your printout with you - another couple had lost theirs and almost didn't make the crossing. The harbor management (not the ferry line) let then use their internet and printer to make a copy and they were allowed on the ferry.

26 Jun 2011Check in confusing
Check-in didn't open until after 4pm for a 4.30pm sailing, even though according to the e-ticket you had to be there at least an hour before sailing. Once open only the first 4 people in the line (of which luckily we were) who had bookings on the 4.30pm sailing were given tickets, the other 6 or so people in the line were told to get the next boat at 6pm, even though they had bookings for the 4.30pm.
