A historical site not to be missed. Just off Atatürk Boulevard you’ll see the impressive three double arches of the gates, which were erected in 130 to celebrate the visit of Emperor Hadrian. Legend has it that in ancient times, the queen of Sheba passed through the middle arch on her way to Aspensos and spent a happy night with King Salomon. With the exception of the columns, the arch is made from white marble and is richly decorated.

Remnant from the Grecian architecture, this gate reminded of of Athens. The old city inside the Hadrians gate is quite charming and you would find lines of shops selling quaint stuff.

We had a guide for this part of our visit to Turkey so we learned a lot of details about the buildings and area. Perhaps we learned a lot more than was necessary but I would still advise a guide as I felt we absorbed more of the incredible history of the Turks by having the guide.

Hadrian's gate is a nice stop for a few minutes and is very close to the shops and bazaar but that is about it. There is nothing much really to see.

Gate was interesting and impressive. It was good condition and well-preserved. What makes Gate even more impressive was that there was original defense wall left in both direction to the gate.

My tour group's hotel is a few blocks away. It is a quick photo opp if you are in Antalya with a sign to explain the significance. Lots of people in the area selling the same types of things sold around the city.

Actually, it's not Hadrian's gate since it was built when Hadrian visited this part of Empire. Anyway it is great spot for taking pictures and it is easily accessible by public transportation. It's not big and you might miss it if not prepared.

It seems to be very old gate but the way to reach there was very hard and there was not a good sign for this place. even though it is not in a good conditions.

Steeped in history. This is a must for visitors to Kaleici the old quarter of the city of Antalya. It is the main entrance to the walled old city. Bring your camera. Could be a convenient meeting point for groups. Mind the steps. Not good for the disabled as there are other easier entrances into Kaleici but this is THE... More
