Love the traditional architecture. It was very interesting walking around the old city of Kaleici. Down at the pier was beautiful. There were many big boats for a short & long cruise. Be careful of cars when walking on the small alleys. Too many old, broken and uncared buildings.

We had booked a hotel in this area so that we can be close to main attractions of the city and in a very short time we had seen so many attractions. There was also a historic mosque nearby where we could offer prayers whenever time permitted. An advise for the shoppers is that things are cheaper here as compared... More

The old town or Kaleici had sights like Clock tower and Hadrian's Gate and the view from Mermerli Restaurant was breathtaking. We got good rates at the money changers here too

The actual old city is not that big and can easily be explored in a few hours. It is hot in the summer so you will need to take a lot of breaks. The best deals going are the small restaurants that offer iced coffee or fresh juice for about €1 or €2 - great value. Don't let people show... More

We loved Kaleici. We stayed at the Puding Suites so we could fully enjoying strolling around. We ate at many local restaurants. Good shopping. Stupidly we didn't buy as much as we should thinking we'd get better deals in Istanbul. WRONG.

Living in Kaleici is like being a part of Jumanji. The city protected by its ancient walls is untouched by outer ring of modernisation. Entering its lanes one is exposed to corbel alleys housing sit outs of restaurants and cafes, carpet, lamp & souvenir shops, old style homes converted to hotels and locals enjoying tavla (board game). It is a... More

Kaleici is the old town of Antalya which is very nice. The only downfall is the marina and shops coming back up from Marina the locals are very pushy on selling you stuff.
