Explore Antalya’s old city and visit the Archeology museum
Antalya’s one must- see site is the Archaeology museum. Just hop on the tram for a short ride along the clifftops to the terminus,just opposite the museum. Its collection of Roman statuary, taken from the earby site of Perge is beautifully lit and visually stunning. After lunch, while away several hours just wandering around Kaleiçi (literally ‘ inside the castle’) Fanning up a breaking the cliffs from a pretty old harbour cramned with pleasure boats is a maze of narrow streets and alleys, lined with an electric mix of Ottoman houses with red-tiled roofs, overhanging upper-stories, wooden frames and trim, decorative plaster work and latticed windows, framed by wreathes of purple bougainvillea or sweet-smelling jasmine. There are several remains from Antalya’s Greek, Roman and Byzantine past, such as the much rebuilt city walls, the remains of the Kesik minare( Truncated minaret)once a Roman temple,the monumental Hıdırlik kulesi, an imposing Roman watch-tower set on a cliff-edge, Hadrian’s gate, built to commemorate the visit of the Emperor Hadrian in de second century A.D. Antalya was an important settlement in Selçuk times as well, and the striking Yivli minaret ( Fluted minaret) rises so commandingly above Kaleiçi that it has become the symbol of the city.The Kaleiçi museum is a couple of restored Ottoman houses containing a series of rooms depicting, 19 th centurey Kaleici life, whilst behind this ethnography section is a fine 19th century Greek orthodox church housing an interesting pottery collection.Karaalioğlan park,adjoining Kaleiçi to the east, is a great place to share a bubbling samovar of tea beneath the palms and gaze idle across the bay or people watch.
