Where to stay in Antalya? Kaleiçi, the old town

logement-quartier-antalya-meilleur (1)

Nestling on the hill, with its port at the very bottom, Kaleiçi is undoubtedly Antalya’s most popular district. Take a stroll through the narrow, cobbled streets of this ancient city, where you can take photos of the countless historic monuments that the district is home to.

One example is the Kesic Minare. It was an ancient Roman temple, then a Byzantine church, and finally a mosque with a broken minaret. The red-brick Yivli Mosque, with its grooved minaret, Hadrian’s Gate and Clock Tower are also worth a visit.

If you’re a fan of shopping, you can take a stroll along the Atatürk Caddesi and Kazim Ozalp Caddesi shopping streets, where you’ll find some great souvenirs to take home with you as a reminder of this off-the-beaten-track escapade. But play the game, if you see that you are very much in demand by several shopkeepers, who will try to sell you their souvenirs, and above all haggle fiercely, it’s all part of the game.

In the evening, don’t resist the temptation to take a bath in one of the famous Turkish hammams! The Sefa Hammam, built in the 13th century, will transport you into a typical Turkish ritual.

Kaleiçi is a must-see district full of promise. A good choice if you want to sleep soundly in Antalya and get up for a new day full of pleasant surprises. And there’s no shortage of attractions.

To the south of Kaleiçi, the Karaalioglu park offers an ineffable view of the cliffs and mountains in the distance, encircling Antalya. You can also see the Hidirlik tower.

Akseki: A haven of peace in the Taurus mountains

Antalya is known for its abundance of tourist activities, spread out over miles of coastal resorts. It’s a lucrative business, to be sure, but Akseki, this mountain retreat nestled at 1,500 metres, seems to stand in stark contrast.

Despite the growth in mainstream tourism, mountain villages like Akseki are keen to preserve their culture and traditions by spreading the word to their guests. Some Antalya residents also head to Akseki to escape the sweltering summer heat.

  • Visit the Akseki Ethnographic Museum
  • See Altinbesik Magarasi Milli Parki
  • Discover the Manavgat waterfalls
  • Discover the temple of Apollo and Athena

Dosemealti: Renowned for its carpets

Original Turkish carpets, as true collectors’ items, are almost a trademark. And an authentic Turkish carpet can be very expensive. In Turkey, there are specific regions renowned for their preeminence in handmade Turkish rugs, and Dosemealti is one of them.

More information on Antalya and where to stay

Antalya, also known as the “Turkish Riviera”, is undoubtedly the most popular tourist destination on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. In fact, the figure of 9 million visitors a year speaks for itself.

Antalya also enjoys mild weather, with 300 days of sunshine, another argument in favour of this seaside resort. But despite the huge crowds, sleeping in Antalya is easy and good value.

The city is a real getaway, an escape to its dreamy beaches, with snow-capped peaks in the background until the middle of spring, but at the same time it encourages immersion in its sites steeped in history and entertainment.

Antalya has managed to reconcile the demands of tourism with the preservation of its heritage. The redevelopment of the Roman port and the renovation of the old town, a maze of Ottoman alleyways that provide pleasant shelter year-round, are two telling examples.
