The best time to visit; Marmaris, which has hot summers and mild winters, is suitable to be visited every month of the year. However, the months of April-October can be preferred for summer vacation. I would also like to remind you that July and August are the busiest months.
When you come to Marmaris, the small holiday resort, if you want to remember this beautiful place for yourself and the people you love, it is unlikely that you will not fall into the Old Bazaar, which was built by influencing the architectural design of Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar.
