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.

I would fully recommend visiting the Old Town of Kaleici and, if you're there already, you may as well seek out this attraction. It's still in use as a gate into the town and some of it's detail is perfectly preserved.

Interesting to see, but that's it. You have to combine it with shopping in Antalya of visiting a moskee

Great location just in the heart of old Kaleiçi area of the city,it is also very close to the Kaleiçi Marina.This historical gate is still in use as a gate.İt leads into Kaleiçi (Old Antalya) where a lot of small pensions,boutique hotels,cafes,pubs and restaurants are existing.Strongly recommended to have a close look at this famous old historical gate.

If your in the area I'd make time to go and see this! It's good for a couple of photos and to have a look around but Apart from the gate there is not a huge amount to see unless you want to go shopping too!

Hadrians Gate was beautiful, but it was spoilt because it was a really busy enviroment. Lots of noise and traffic, and lots and lots of people walking through the gate made it difficult to take pictures. Overall i wouldnt go back to Turkey again, i found the people a nuisance (always trying to sell you something) and very rude indeed.... More

As the gate to the old city, this is a beautiful piece. However, it is now home to businesses, and the natural beauty and history are lost in it. there are some signs that teach you about the history. I'd suggest going early in the day to enjoy it in peace and solitude.

Hadrian's Gate is very well preserved and is part of the old city. It's easy to find and see during your old city tour.

Easy to get to and worth a look if interested in the Roman history. Not much there for signage and is clearly used as a regular walkway into old city

I must admit a slight feeling of disappointment when I visited Hadrian's Gate, in reality it is what it is, one of the gateways into the city during Roman times. It is only after you stand and take in the significance of this structure that you fully understand what it is all about and why it is treasured. City gateways... More
