Two kilometers inland - about a twenty-minute walk - from the main square of Demre, the ruins of Myra chiefly feature Lycian tombs and a Roman theater. The tombs, thought to have been carved to resemble houses of the time, can be viewed by climbing ladders in the area. Several reliefs decorate some of the tombs, including one depicting a deathbed scene. Admission is charged by the Turkish Tourism Board.

Information from Lonely Planet. I think I stayed in the tour bus for this one.
