Enjoy incredible holidays in Antalya, the jewel of Turkey's coastline
Explore the rich and beautiful history of Antalya
The region has a rich and complex past. Antalya was once a Roman city, then a byzantine one. During the crusades, christian warriors chose it as the perfect harbour on their way to Jerusalem. In 1923, it became an Ottoman city. Today, it is markedly Turkish, but it carries the complexity and beauty of the many cultures which inhabited it.
So get settled in one of our wide selection of hand-picked, luxury hotels, and start making your way among the ancient sights of this stunning city! You can go to the old city. Start walking from the main square, called Kale Kapisi, with its ancient clock tower and the statue of Attalus II, the founder of the city. Very close to this square is the square of the Republic, full of quaint cafés and restaurants, and the Antalya museum. Make sure you pop by ?ki Kap?lar Han?, a huge covered market (bazar) built in the 15th century, where you can buy all sorts of typical objects.
Go wild in Antalya's nightlife
Antalya is a youthful, modern city, and our exclusive prices will allow you to explore it in all its glory. Walking by the beach in the evenings you will find places to have a drink by the sunset and have a dance with the locals. An unmissable delight is the many panoramic terraces which look over the old harbour.
The famous Club Arma, for example, is a restaurant with many bar areas and a luxury disco. From there, you can watch the sun set on the gulf as you sip your raki, a typical Turkish alcoholic drink based on anise. Another great destination is Club Ally, in the historical centre, where you will find the grand total of nine bars and incredible music.
Relax by beaches and enthralling natural sights
The gorgeous beaches are among the most famous attractions in this city. The one that is most popular, and closest to the centre, is Konyaalti, a large strip of sand and small stones, almost seven kilometres long. It's a free beach which can easily be reached by bus or by dolmus, the typically Turkish transport method halfway between a bus and a collective taxi.
You can also visit Alanya, famous for its length and for its sparkling nightlife. If you walk a bit further, you will find Topcam, which faces Sican island. Finally, make sure you visit one of the most beautiful beaches in the world: Patara Kumsal?, famous for its beautiful turtles and for its Roman ruins.
