Antalya is as laid-back as you might expect from a city on the Mediterranean with a 4.5 mile (7 km) beach stretching along its frontier.
Its attractive Old Town is a great place to be based, and exploring its narrow, cobbled streets and traditional architecture is a lovely way to spend a few hours.
Antalya has one of the best archaeological museums in the country, which complements the three ancient cities that lie close by: Perge, Aspendos and Termessos.
Around 10 miles (17 km) to the east of Antalya is Perge, a large and comprehensive site, which was once an important city in the 2nd and 3rd centuries BC.
Aspendos, to the east of the city, has arguably Turkey’s best, most complete theatre, built during the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius in the 2nd century AD. Aspendos is surrounded by mountains, which makes this excellently-preserved theatre even more spectacular.
Termessos is slightly further from Antalya but is an even larger ancient city than Perge, and dates back to before 333 BC, which is the first known record of the city.
