Assos Travel Guide: 50 reviews and 204 photos

The temple ruins of ancient Assos stands high on a hill overlooking the Bay of Edremit and the Greek island Levsos. The view is fantastic!
On the hillside, to the west/north, is the old stone village of Behramkale. Going down a couple of kilometres along a winding road to the sea you come to the picturesque harbour.

    Hi Malena, yes the view and the atmosphere was perfect, I like there also but the light was so bad for photograph when I went there...

    Yes, that view from the Temple is indeed quite spectacular!! It sounds like your accommodations were quite rustic and its breakfast balcony looks quite inviting!

    an interesting location & great pics, Malena ! ...and you obviously need to be a millionaire to afford an ice-cream ! In my last time in Turkey (1990) I could buy a sesame-ring for 200 TL.

    Nice pics. The theatre looks interesting as it was built by the hill.
