Antalya was founded by King Attalos II in 150 BC after commandeering his troops to find Heaven on Earth for him – which they did in this very special province. The city witnessed the Roman, Byzantium, and Ottoman periods. Today we have a rich history and a beautiful natural environment coupled with one of the country’s best preserved ancient towns. Antalya is a pretty special place, yet remains off the beaten track for many foreigners!
Our tour will focus on Kaleiçi – Antalya’s old town. Why? Because it is charming, picturesque, colourful, and it shows you a completely different Antalya compared to its modern counterpart. One can hardly believe that it’s part of a buzzing city with 1,3 million inhabitants. The old city ( Kaleiçi ) is like a universe on its own, with plenty of historic monuments. It’s also the city’s most atmospheric district – a maze of narrow winding streets dotted with traditional wooden houses from Ottoman period, bars, restaurants, and Ottoman-style boutique hotels.
On this tour, we will walk through the narrow cobblestoned streets of Kaleiçi and explore magnificent Roman ruins, Ottoman style wooden houses, Seljuk style mosque, pubs & bars, local shops selling handcrafts, handwoven carpets etc. And we will talk about history, everyday life, Turkish culture, Turkish cuisine or any topic of your choice.
If you would like to explore Heaven on Earth from a local’s point of view, come take a walk around Kaleiçi with me!
