Must to Visit Places in Antalya Turkey

1) Antalya's Old Town

The winding streets of Kaleiçi were made for wandering. The cobblestone alleys are lined with perfectly restored whitewashed and red-roofed Ottoman palaces, which now house a profusion of boutique hotels, souvenir stores, art galleries, and restaurants. There are lots of little tourist sites for people who wish to sightsee, yet it's more of a location to simply soak in the old-world air. The main square includes a fortress gate and a stone-clad clock tower, while the Tekeli Mehmet Paşa Mosque, built in the 18th century, is worth seeing for its magnificent interior tile work alone.

2) Konyaalti Beach

Konyaalti Beach, located west of Antalya's town center, is one of Antalya's two finest stretches of sand, with a stunning backdrop of mountains rolling down to the coast beyond. During the summer, both locals and visitors flock to this pebbly beach (which is more pebbly than sandy), where relaxing beach days are made simple with plenty of amenities. Sun loungers with umbrellas are available for rent, as are appropriate bathroom and shower facilities, as well as a palm-lined promenade behind the beach packed with snack shops, cafés, and restaurants if you become hungry.

3) A Visit to Aspendos

The day trip to Aspendos, some 47 kilometers east of Antalya, is the main reason history buffs visit. This ancient site is home to a Roman theatre that is often regarded as the best preserved in the world and is one of Turkey's most popular tourist destinations. Most of the ruins that can be seen today were built during the 2nd and 3rd centuries when this dazzling, ancient town was at its peak. Apart from the theatre, which has been totally restored and can accommodate 15,000 people, much of the remainder of the site is still in ruins and is likely only of interest to the most ardent sightseer.

4) A Trip to Antalya Museum

Don't miss this superb museum if you're interested in the Classical-era history of this stretch of Turkey's coast. The eye-catching exhibitions here feature the top discoveries from all of the main excavation sites in the area. Even more, the collection is presented in a professional manner, making the rich history of this part of the coast simple to comprehend.
