This old quarter of Kaleici in Antalya is atmospheric and trendy. It is full of hotels, restaurants, shops and bars that are overflowing in the evenings and weekends. It is a bit of a tourist rip-off and in some streets you will be pestered to visit shops and this spoils the experience somewhat. The police have a scam running as... More

The Old Town is just beautiful - quaint and quiet - the best time to take a good walk around it is early the morning after an early breakfast at your hotel as it is incredibly quiet and you can see all the shops setting up for the days business. the small winding streets and beautiful with a million interesting...

I visited Antalya in September along with my wife. We had read about the old town and looked forward to exploring it, however like many of Turkeys treasures we found it blighted by endless shops selling the same counterfeit goods. This would be a minor matter were it not for the shop and restaurant staff each one of whom wants... More

You cannot miss the old city if you are in Antalya and I recommend to choose your hotel in the center of it. Full of shops placed in old renovated houses and it goes the same for some of the hotels. Small streets where you can get lost in and discover the authenticity of this charming city. It is also... More

We like old cities and this fits the bill. It features a few attractions, a lovely harbor, a number of good restaurants and a surprisingly active nightlife (lots of live music in many genres). Plenty of shopping if that's your thing.

Kaleici is the most fascinating, historing and popular part of Antalya. It can be entered thru the famed and ancient Hadrian's Gate, but there are other entrances too. The old town is a maze of tiny, quaint streets, most of which are pedestrian. It houses many hotels to stay in, lovely restaurants as well as charming shops. I would suggest... More
