The most impressive place of the city is definitely Kaleiçi, which we call the old city area. Kaleiçi consists entirely of walls. There are traditional houses around the narrow streets leading to the harbour within the walls. Today, this region attracts attention with its hotels, restaurants, bars, souvenirs and entertainment venues. Yivli Minaret and Kesik Minare Mosque, one of the first Islamic structures of Antalya, located close to Kaleiçi, are located here. Hadrian’s Gate is one of the best-preserved structures in Antalya.

It is a wonderful museum that can only be visited in half a day. Do not forget that you can visit for free with your museum card.

If you want to go out to nature, we recommend the İbradi region. I should remind you here that it is the third largest underground cave in Europe. Altınbeşik Cave is also fascinating with its turquoise color.
For places to visit in Antalya, you can go to Eynif plateau and enjoy the fresh air. Waterfalls are among the places to visit in Antalya and one of our recommendations. Manavgat Waterfall and Düden Waterfall can be preferred for their proximity to the city. The location where Düden Waterfall meets the Mediterranean is one of the most popular location among international property investors. “We probably get around 20 calls a day regarding properties that are located in Lara part of Antalya” Berkan Ozyurt says.
In addition, Kurşunlu Waterfall on the way to Isparta can be included in the list of places to see.

We recommend you to visit the ancient city of Perge, which is 17 km away from the city. One of the best-preserved ancient stadiums of our country is here. If you continue this road, you can also visit the ancient city of Aspendos in Belkıs. The aqueducts, temples and the surviving structure of the stadium will surprise you.

Antalya Travel Guide
One of the favourite ancient cities here are Xantos Ancient City and Letoon Ancient City, which are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Even though it is on the other side of the city, it’s worth a visit. These ancient cities are on the way for those coming from Muğla and Fethiye. One of my favorite ancient cities is the ancient city of Myra, located in the city center of Demre. In this ancient city, the rock tombs on the slopes attract my attention.
Again, Olympos Ancient City is one of my favorite places. I admire the natural beauty of this place. Olympos, which is one hour away from Antalya, should be on your list. On the way here, you can also visit the Ancient City of Phaselis along the way. A beautiful place in the shade of pine and cedar trees. You can also swim in the small harbor of the ancient city.
We would like to remind you that there is Side Antique City that you will add to your list of places to visit in Antalya. It is a beautiful place with its settlement in the city. The ancient theatre, the temple of Apollo, the city gate, the bath, the walls, the port, the necropolis, the agora, and the Vespasianus fountain are the most important structures of the city.
