Plan your journey from Antalya Airport Domestic
From Antalya’s domestic airport, you’re around a 30-minute drive from the city of Antalya – a bustling modern metropolis with a historic heart. The old town is a delight to explore with Ottoman mansions, narrow alleyways and a pretty harbour area.
The main square has a number of landmarks to spot, including the stone clock tower and the 18th-century Tekeli Mehmet Pasa Mosque featuring an elaborately tiled interior.
The entrance gates to the old town are another must-see, the most dramatic being Hadrian’s Gate – a three-arched marble gateway built in AD 130 in honour of Emperor Hadrian.
Walk along Hesapci Sokak and check out the elegant truncated minaret, Kesik Minare, all that’s left of a building that was originally a Roman temple, then a church and finally a mosque.
If you’re interested in Turkish history, make sure you spend a few hours at the Antalya Museum. Here you’ll uncover a host of exhibits and finds from excavation sites across Turkey, including a large archaeological section with artefacts from the bronze age to Byzantium times.
The Roman Fortress overlooking the harbour is another prime attraction. Set next to an attractive park, the ancient structure is popular with families and those in search of a peaceful picnic location.
Enjoy the sights of Antalya and southern Turkey from the comfort of your rental car.
