While in Antalya, a must-see spot is Hadrian’s Gate. It is the only remaining ancient entry gate to Antalya. It was a part of the original city wall that protected the city. It was named in honor of Roman Emperor Hadrian, who visited Antalya. The gate is a part of the local life, with people bustling through it throughout the day. Take your own walk through the gate as you admire the beautiful architecture and deep ruts in the cobblestone from years of use.  

Karaalioglu Park  


One of the most beautiful places to visit in Antalya is Karaalioglu Park. It was founded in 1943 and is considered one of the central parks in the city. Sitting on the cliff edge, you can see the beach, Konyaalti cliffs, and harbor. In the far distance are the Taura mountains standing prominently. There is a nice stone pathway that you can follow to see the best sights. There is the ancient Hidirlik Tower that was built in the 2nd century BC. Along the path are also countless exotic fruit and flower plants.  

Lara Beach 


The beautiful Mediterranean weather makes the beach a perfect destination. Lara Beach is one of the area's most popular and well-known beaches. Golden sand stretches for 12 kilometers down the coastline. So grab a towel, soak up the sun, and enjoy the crystal blue water.  

Antalya Bazaar 


Dive into the local culture by visiting the Antalya Bazaar. Explore the narrow alleys that are overflowing with vendor booths. You will see everything from fine handcrafted jewelry to woven textiles, leather goods, and famous spices. While it is a perfect place to shop, it is worth visiting even if you don’t plan to buy anything. The electric energy of the bazaar gives you an immersive experience.  

Visiting Antalya is like stepping back in time. This Mediterranean city manages to blend modern innovation with ancient accomplishments. The result is a city that has something to interest everyone.
