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.

Hadrian's gate is well worth a visit because of it's historical interest. Very close by is garden with shaded benches where you can sit and relax and watch the world go by. You can buy Turkish tea from the vendors who serve you where you sit for half a lira. Just back from the gate, towards the Kaleici is a... More

Now this was a place to see. We happened by it walking on the street, and it was beautiful and cultural. The surrounding places are also worth the walk, so scope out the entire area.

Great place to snap a picture and say you've been, but that's about it. Well preserved and something you should see in Antalya, but ordinary otherwise considering all that's available in the area. Beautiful at night.

The monument is located near the entrance of Kalilici and is surrounded by local craft shops. It has a lot of restaurants and bars around it so you can sit and enjoy the view you get here :)
