Top sights in Antalya
Situated on the southwest coast of Turkey’s Anatolia peninsula, Antalya is a resort city known for its stunning beaches, ancient Roman ruins, and the historic Kaleiçi quarter. Among the most popular things to do in Antalya include a visit to the nearby archeological sites showcasing well-preserved excavated settlements, a trip to the picturesque national parks, and a relaxing day frolicking on its crystal clear beaches.
Antalya offers the perfect blend of historical attractions and leisurely activities. In the old Ottoman quarter of Kaleiçi stands the antique Hadrian’s Gate, Hidirlik Tower, and the Yivli and Kesik Minarets. There is an abundance of ancient cities on the outskirts of the city center to explore. Antalya also holds Turkey's record number of Blue Flag beaches, which are recognized for their pristine water quality as well as dedication to environmental sustainability.
When is the Best Time to Visit Antalya?
Antalya weather is typically warm and dry during the summer months of June to August, making it the ideal season for beach hopping. Spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are shoulder seasons perfect for outdoor activities like walking tours, trekking, and even rafting or canoeing. There are also significantly fewer tourists so it is easier to book Antalya flights and accommodations during these months.
Where is the Best Location for Tourists to Stay in Antalya?
Stick to Antalya hotels in the heart of Kaleiçi quarter if it’s your first time visiting this coastal town. There are plenty of dining and shopping options in the old town plus Antalya’s historic landmarks are within walking distance. For more affordable accommodations, head to Konyaalti Beach just a few kilometers away from the city center.
