Imagine how daily life went on in the Antiquity at Curetes Street. Once lined with ancient homes and businesses--now turned into ruins--the wide marble road winds its way down the hill stretching from the upper Hercules Gate to the library. Start at the upper gate and stroll down soaking in the panoramic views across the town along the way. Once down, you can get a taxi or a donkey ride back up. Remember to bring a hat and a bottle of water with you--it can get quite hot in the summer. Make Curetes Street part of your personalized Selcuk itinerary using our Selcuk attractions planning tool .
