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.

Nice historical feature in Old City

Definitely worth the stop if your exploring the old city. Great place to take pictures though if your driving parking might be a bit difficult to find.

This gate dates back to the Roman era, its architecture is amazing and has been restaured. This is a great point to start your exploration in the Old City.

To think that something that dates back to the first century is still around today is just amazing! It's had some repairs to help preservation but is still incredible.

I had this to my list of things to see in Kaleci while I walked around in circles getting lost. Found it easier by walking on the outside of the wall. Worth a couple of pictures.

It is a very nice gate, or at least it has been. Now unfortunately it is surrounded by tourist shops and bars. Nevertheless as it is in the city center of Antalya you should go and see it if you are there anyways

Nice trip out of the all inclusive hotel. However if you have been a bit around Europe this is nothing that will blow your mind. Just a nice touristic place with some roman arches and clean. Would not go there just for it.

Hadrian's Gate is a landmark dating to the Roman times (read the history on the posted signs). They have covered the center lane with a bridge (likely for preservation reasons) so it's difficult to see where the grooves from the carts are unless one goes around and kneels on the floor. A very important note about the vicinity, though, is... More

Visited Feb 2015. Really is fabulous. So intricate so interesting. Gate leads to maze like streets. Be careful as we got lost for an hour with small children!! Little market shops in between. Must visit this area.

The gate itself is of great historical interest, but it leads into the old city and a wealth of interesting alleyways and narrow streets. Take your time to just wander and take it all in!!
