Along with some friends we met, Paul and Rachel, from Farnborough we made the trip up to the castle in a hired jeep. The journey was well worthwhile as the view alone was spectacular. It was also fascinating to see the building work that went into creating the castle and walls for defence of the original Alanya. It was on... More

It can be reached by bus No. 4 or taxi, but there's no information on bus stops, so arrivals and departures should be checked before going.

Alanya is such a beautiful place to visit. Walking up to the castle is lovely as there is much to learn and see. Great for taking photographs. Nice restaurants along the way and also good for shopping for your genuine fakes! Remember to haggle and you can get some bargains.

You can get there with a bus but we went by walking. The view was just stunning so we stopped almost every 10 minutes to take a photo. We didn`t go inside the castle since it wasn`t free. On our way down we decided to take a taxi. It was very expensive, 8 € for two persons and the ride... More

We atleast had the chance to see the overlooking of cleopatra side and the other side (where the port is located) There are some restaurants at the hill. :) very... More

Climbed all way up long winding roadway to see wonderful castle. Really only ruins and not so well looked after as UK castles. Views though were worth the long hike as were spectacular. Battlements not suitable for children as infinity drop the other side!!! Lots of taxis willing to take you up to top, but you do miss the views... More
