Very interesting base to enjoy the parks along the waterfront. the museum we found interesting. To travel out to Aspendos, and Perge which we found very interesting.
Well worth the visit. Also the beach at Lara waterfall and cliff top walks. The old city and boat harbour also took a lot of time to enjoy. The tram along the front allowed you to visit all the places on the way. Shopping was good the water front interesting in the evening. Water display fountains took on a different interest in the evening.
Old city is the touristic part, but if you go just outside the old city you can experience the normal Turkish day life, with normal shops and restaurants.
In tourist part the shop owners were not too aggressive, but still 'less would be more'
Antalya is a great place to stay. I greatly enjoyed its architecture, cultural life, waterfalls and beaches.
At the same time, it is small enough to get around even by bicycle.
Antalya was one of the cleanest and well looked after places in turkey with its lights and water feature shows down the main street was unbelievably well looked after
A very picturesque old part of town, Kaleici is the place to stay to experience the authentic feel of this city.
Walking down to the Marina through the little streets and looking at the beautiful old houses was delightful!
Antalya is a beautiful city. Full of colors, mountains, beaches, sightseeing. Whether you want to relax on the beach or to do outdoor water sports activities, Antalya would be the best choice in any case.
The old city is nice but the shop owners have that burntout feel that some big tourist towns get. I spend a night there, walk around the old town, soak in the views.
also a good place to pickup a rental car. lots of dealers.
