ANTALYA – WHY GO?
Beautiful beaches, historic ruins and charming old towns make Antalya one of Turkey’s most popular provinces. Dive into its heritage from the Byzantine, Roman and Ottoman empires, and soak up the sun along the sandy coast.
MUST SEE, MUST DO
Explore the city’s tree-lined boulevards on your way to Hadrian's Gate. Pause at the Clock Tower at Kalekapisi and Republic Square for stunning views. Try not to get lost among the Ottoman houses in the narrow maze of winding streets through historic Kaleiçi, the old part of Antalya.
Olimpos and Çirali
Around an hour’s drive from Antalya city you’ll find the pristine beaches of Olimpos and Çirali in front of two charming small villages that have a dramatic forested backdrop. Things hot up at Çirali, where the chimera – natural flames that have flickered for thousands of years – burn mysteriously among the rocks.
Take a trip back in time to the ancient city of Parnphylia, which was settled in 1500BC. Check out the beautiful carved marble in the ruins of the theatre stage and try to imagine the long line of stalls that once flanked the road from the city gate.
White sand beaches and Roman/Hellenistic ruins make Side one of Turkey’s most popular seashore destinations. It can get busy there, but it’s worth a visit to see the magnificent theatre, temple of Apollo, necropolis and Roman baths.
Nearby Antalya city is Manavgat Waterfall, which is a picturesque low waterfall that gushes over a wide area and makes a popular picnic stop. Make it a watery hat trick with a trip to Duden Falls and Kursunlu Falls as well.
