Kaleici, Antalya

4.6
#1 of 438 in Things to do in Antalya Province
Also referred to as Old Antalya, Kaleici represents the historical center of the city. Up until World War II, it was one and the same city as Antalya, but rapid development in the decades since has created two cities. The historical center features narrow streets squeezed between old houses on the Roman harbor along the Mediterranean coast. Several entrances allow you access to the old town; the most historical and best-known is Hadrian's Gate. Wander the ancient city streets to find restaurants offering authentic Turkish dishes.

    The old town of Antalya is full of charm with its beautiful flowery streets and beautiful Ottoman houses. The neighborhood is almost pedestrian. Pretty quiet during the day, it comes alive in the evening in bars and restaurants. The prices are very reasonable. Beautiful park nearby with views of the Bay of Antalya

Where to stay in Antalya

The Mediterranean holiday spot of Antalya is abundant in places to stay. The Old Town of Kaleiçi boasts a plethora of small guesthouses and hostel offerings set in traditional Ottoman houses of stone. Often accompanied by a charming backyard pool and garden out front, these affordable accommodations are just a stone's throw from the harbor and amenities. You can find a few upscale boutique hotels here as well. If you're looking to splurge a little more, head to the suburb of Lara, just east of Antalya. Here, four- and five-star all-inclusive resorts dominate the sandy beaches.
