Hi Guys, This is the place to stay in Antalya. It feels like Sicily or Sardinia. Very beautiful place. You can get some bargains there but you need to fight for a bargain (shop owners love it). Lots of good restaurants with fresh seafood. You can find nice marina there. If you want to get a boat trip - don't... More

I have been to Kaleici many mange times and every time I see new things. I like walking at the soft stones and just looking at the very beautifully restores Ottoman houses, but also seeing the authentic decay of other houses. It also is a great pleasure to see all the flowers, the wines, the bananas, the pomegranate etc. The... More

Our gorgeous 125 year old Ottoman pansion was one of the special places we stayed at in #Turkey. Kaleiçi also has Roman ruins. Hadrian's Gate was erected to commemorate his visit in 130 CE.... More

Narrow passages, all renovated old buildings, hotels, bars and restaurants with music coming out of them..... just a great place. The nightlife is wonderful. Numerous restaurants where you can dine for 20 TL and more. I personally prefer the ones located near Marina with view of the see. There is a private beach at Marina where you can go for... More

Take a walk in the old town. As you go downhill you reach the sea. as you go uphill you leave the old town. follow the crowd. take a boat tour. it is cheap and fun. you can easly spend and afternoon and then dine there, and have fun for the rest of the night.
