Antalya is a city on the Mediterranean coast of south-western Turkey. It is Turkey’s biggest international sea resort, located on the Turkish Riviera.
Antalya has something for everyone. If you want to feast on sightseeing, the labyrinthine old town is full of historic sites, while the atmospheric old harbour makes a tranquil spot to relax. The city is also perfectly placed to act as your base for sightseeing in the outlying area, where grand Roman ruins at Aspendos and caves inhabited in prehistoric times await.
It’s not all history though. This city is a great spot from which to access the white sandy beaches and turquoise waters. Beach-bums and history-lovers will both be satisfied.
Antalya has a Mediterranean climate, with hot dry summers and mild rainy winters. The sea temperature ranges from 16 °C in winter to 27 °C in summer.
