Loved the architecture, great atmosphere and selection of bars, aces to eat, though pricier in this area. Didn't like constantly being bombarded by street sellers.

This old town in Antalya is very pictures and a cosy place to visit. It was a bit of season, so not as busy as I Think it might be during high season. Lots of restaurants and some with s great view of the Marina too. The place to visit when in Antalya.

if you want to escape the madness, head to Kaleici! peaceful to walk around (we were mid october) with plenty of beautiful buildings and lots of restaurants and shops. Felt like you were in a small village and not a city of over 1 million.

Worth a walk and tour around. Plenty of restaurants and bars, and a beautiful harbour. We liked the ease of getting around by foot.

Kaleici is Antalya's old district. It steeply descends from the streets of the modern town centre down to the picturesque marina. You can get a tram to the Clock tower or Hadrian's Gate, both make good starting points for exploration. Close to the mosque by the clock tower is bird street, with most street vendors having a songbird in a... More

Whenever you go that is touristic and has a history, you'll find a place like this. Little cute houses and little cute streets. Worth a look. Cool place for a stroll. Do go down to the marina, the best part!

our hotel was not next to the beach, we had a shuttle, we found the beach not fit for our feet as its a bit rough compared to the beaches in Portugal, in Spain, Italy in Greece in Goa, in Cuba and the carribeans. However the water was very warm for us and there were no waves... very clean..

Lovely old town with some great Ottoman style buildings, now mostly hotels. Tiny streets only just navigable by car. The rubbish truck plays Vivaldi's Four Seasons! As you'd expect, there is no shortage of places to eat or tourist shops. But it's ok. Nice place.
