The resort of Antalya is one of the premier destinations for people looking to enjoy a beach break on Turkish soil, and is also a popular stopping point for cruise ships sailing around the Mediterranean.
The resort provides a fascinating blend of old and new for visitors, with the chance to explore the Old Town area being one of the major attractions when you step ashore.
The historic centre, Kaleiçi, is certainly worth exploring during your time in the resort, with the narrow cobbled streets featuring a number of old attractions, which include Hadrian’s Gate and the Hıdırlık Tower – both of which were key parts of the wall that once encompassed the city.
Other historical highlights include the various traditional Turkish Hammams that can be found across the city and the colourful bazaar, where you can find all manner of different souvenirs to take home as a reminder of your trip.
Antalya tends to enjoy favourable weather for much of year and for that reason, you might enjoy simply spending your time ashore enjoying some of the coastal areas, with the sandy shores around Lara Beach being particularly popular.
Depending on how long have in Antalya, you could visit the popular aquarium or book an excursion out to the scenic surroundings of the Upper Duden Falls around 25 mins away, which are amongst the most famous of the many waterfalls in the Antalya region.
