Antalya is a beautiful old city on the southwestern coast of Turkey along the Mediterranean whose city center features ancient wonder such as Hadrian's Gate, Korkut Mosque, Tekeli Mehmet Paşa Mosque, and the famous fluted minarets (Yivli Minare). I love Antalya because it is the classic beach town in which its easy to escape the "all inclusive resorts" and other noisy tourists - with the added plus of incredible historic landmarks. Unlike Istanbul's toursity area's there aren't constantly people handing you fliers, asking you into their restaurant, or trying to sell you something.
I stayed for the most part within the walls of the old city, which was nice and quiet in November with few tourists, but still warm enough to go swimming! Antalya is also close to other ancient cities such as Perge and Olympos that you can take day trips to. Although there is a lot to do and see around Antalya you can see the important stuff in a long weekend.
LOVELY RELAXING BEACH TOWN!
SPRING BREAK 2012!

Also known as Old Antalya, the small historic section called Kaleiçi at the center of the sprawling modern city surrounded and protected the old Roman harbor, which was Antalya's reason for being. Today Kaleiçi is a protected district, with preservation of historic buildings required, and strict regulations on any new building.

Antalya is "in" as an international tourist destination. Located on the Mediterranean coast in southwest Turkey, this lovely seacoast city boasts many hotels (including high end resorts), restaurants, and shopping opportunities. Be sure to visit both the old town and the new. Look for Hadrian's Gate, the Fluted Minaret (the symbol of Antalya), lovely beaches, mosques, churches, Turkish baths. and historic houses. Antalya is a MUST on your visit to Turkey.

If you want relaxation, sun and adventure...Antalya is a city you should visit. I swam in the Phaselis Harbor, Climed the Chimera and saw flames rising from the natural gas holes in the top, and I toured the old city. There's so much more I need to go back to and see.
