Owner description: 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.

“shopping trip”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Interesting, but because it was so hot and it was at the beginning of the shopping trip it tended to be glossed over - lovely walk down to it via Palm Street, but we only spent a minute there as we wanted to go shopping - that was a mistake.

“Is this one the real one?”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We have travelled around Turkey for many months and have to admit we have seen 3 'original' Hadrian's Gates in other cities. A local man stressed this is the real one and all the others were fake. Oddly, a similar story was heard in the other places too. So who knows?

“not loads to see but worth going to for the food places”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

liked - Hadrians gate is well preserved and you can walk down to the harbour and pass lots of restaurants. You will also see the broken minaret and the tower as you walk down. At the end of the walkway is a beautiful view of the harbour. Close to the clock tower.

disliked - nothing, its free to visit so how can you complain.

“Lucky to have survived.”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Only preserved because it was buried within the city wall it is in excellent condition. Beneath the rather obscure glass paving you can see the deep ruts made by the wheels of Roman carts.Through it you pass from the busy shopping street with cars and trams into the alleyways of the old town.
