Do you want your love to last forever? accotding to the legend, it's easy - you just have to walk along the alley holding hands.
In Marmaris there is a long picturesque avenue of eucalyptus trees, which the local call the the love alley. According to the legend, two madly enamored young people lived in the city, but their parents did not allow them to see each other because of a long feud between two families (like Romeo and Juliette) and they often ran off to walk along this road, which the nature itself seemed to hide from eyes so that no one could see or find them.
How to do?
1. You'd better take your couple with you :)
2. Go to the start of the Marmaris-Mugla-Yula highway, which is actually on the way out of the city towards the village of Akchapinar.
3. Join your hands together and walk forward! Remember that you can not separate your hands and you need to walk all the way from the beginning till the end, only in this case your love will be internal.
4. By the way, this is not a simple walk in the park - noise, hum, dust and heat will be a real test for the strength of your feelings.
5. Good luck!
