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.

In the middle of the city center you find Hadrian´s Gate. Its in old town. You have to have a walk in old town. Its so cozy and a special atmosphere. Nice restaurants and hotels as well.

This was on my places to see and happened to stumble across it. The gate is between a bunch of buildings and shops and could be overlooked. The site is amazing but there is only a little placard with information. Work is being done so there was scaffolding but that is understandable with a site so old.

ok but you miss it if you aren't paying attention given its so old they should probably clean it up a bit and make it more apparent no?

The Gate was surrounded by scaffolding when I visited it yet there was no sign of work being done or any workmen in the area! So, no nice photographs, etc.

Nice gate, one enters from a modern boulevard into the Old Town sector. Wander there. Some nice places (rugs for sale) but also spice shops. Found a wonderful tea made with a variety of spices that provide energy.

If you go to Kaleici old town there is only one entrance to go through and that is Hadrian's Gate, there are other ways in but this IS the one, it has been very well preserved and restored. The Turkish are very proud of their architecture.
