Kaleici is the old Ottoman quarter of Antalya. It is full of old buildings, narrow old streets and many small shops and hotels. It's a freat place for wandering in and for shopping and if you have any appreciation of aesthetics and old buildings you will be well rewarded, especially when you are away from the shops. There are plenty... More

I loved Kaleici (old city)! From Hadrian's Gate to the marina there something new to discover around every corner. You can haggle for souvenirs but be prepared for a more confrontational experience from Turkish men. The views are incredible from the marina. Lots of tours offered in there but I didn't take any so can't comment on the quality.

Enjoyed wandering the old streets in this ancient part of Antalya, from shops selling their wares to restaurants tucked away in odd corners, pubs and cafes abound and there is always something new to encounter, we spent many interesting hours here and enjoyed visiting the restaurants each night.

Very attractive area and good for walking (few if any cars). Lots of tourist shops. In April it was not flooded with tourists but it would be in the summer.

"Kaleici" actually means castle - since the whole old town was a castle once. It's fascinating to see parts of it that has remained. It's nice to walk between the narrow streets and I recommend going to a restaurant located on TOP of the castle wall with a great view over the harbour. The only thing I hate about the... More

We love the old town, the narrow cobbled streets leading down to the beautiful harbour, the shops and eateries, the history. There is very little to dis-like.

Loads of small eateries and cafe's with different styles, live music and lot's happening. Some cheap and cheerful, some more finer dining, but all live and interesting! Beautiful views of the mountains and harbour, great as a final destination for the Lykian way, a long distance culture trek.

This is a great walking discovery. Wonderful view around sunset time. The restaurant options are limited though, they seemed all same to me. We had food in one of the fish sandwich place called Kılçık, up in the center and enjoyed it very much.
