It's nice to walk around in the evening. Lots of people, restaurants and shops. Nice friendly atmosphere, but concerning shopping: don't expect too much authentic stuff. 99% is imitation clothes and handbags from big designers. It's worth an evening walk, but stick to the restaurant area and look for the more quiet alleys...

Went here on the LC07 bus from Lara Beach for the morning. What a great little trip. Full of history and easy to find quiet places away from the standard tourist tat shops. Lovely day!

I stayed for three days in the old town and what a treat it was. Small narrow streets, shops, and interesting characters. Lots and lots of eateries and you are spoilt for choice. Transport options nearby as is a beach where you have to pay a fee to use.

Taking a stroll around the Old Town Kaleici area was just beautiful. It links up different points, the harbour, the Clock Tower, Hadrians gate, Hidirlik Taksi, Karaalioglu Park, Attaturk Boulevard. Try authentic food outside this area rather than in the rip-off, westernized restaurants within it.

Kaleiçi means inside the castle or fortess and you can't help but feel that you have been transported back in time as you pass through the beautiful Hadrian's Gate into Kaleiçi. With its web of tiny lanes, unique architecture and flowing traditional music, this is definitely one of the most atmospheric places i've been to in Turkey. At night, the... More

I strongly recommend this place to stay in Antalya. It`s wonderful, with lots of things to do. Many pubs to drink something at night, a nice harbor from where many boat trips are offer to have a good swimming day! I went for four days with friends and visit each day different attractions. You would have everything you need to... More

Beautifully restored and perfect to walk around in a leisurely fashion - as is the old town, so long as you avoid carpet salesmen. On that theme and before you decide to eat, check restaurant reviews here especially of the Odile restaurant close to the Tower.
