Antalya - Turkey Highlights:
Old Town, Perge, Aspendos, Phaselis
Once prized by crusaders and pirates for its superb location on the southern coast of Turkey, the small and sheltered harbour of Antalya is tucked naturally into the cliff-face, protected by almost intact Byzantine castellated walls. You will probably dock at the ferry port and will need a taxi to get to the Kaleici ("within the castle") quarter, the small but central old town of a city that is mostly modern. The old harbour has been redeveloped but you can climb from here to the Kalepapisi (castle gate) of the old town overlooked by the Yivli Minare (Fluted Minaret) and where a Selcuk tower is built into the city walls. Other sights include the the triple-arched Hadraian's Gate, the Kesik Minare (Broken Minaret) and Hidirlik Kulesi (a round Roman tower) in the corner of of Mermerli and Karaalioglu parks. Not to be missed is the Archaelogical Museum that houses one of the top five collections in the country.

The city also features a pleasant promenade lined with palm trees and cafes, a tram service that circles the old city and runs along the sea front and a good shingle beach. Further afield you can vist sandy beacheds and waterfalls at Duden and Kursunlu. From here also you can visit the ancient Greek and Roman cities of Perge, Aspendos and Phaselis.

Established by King Attalus II of Pergamon during the second century BC, it was from Antalya that St. Paul and Barnabus set sail on their first mission in the 1st century AD. Crusaders used Antalya as a transit point to the Holy Land. The city was briefly occupied by the Turks during the twelfth century, followed by the Byzantines, Ottomans and Italians.
