Antalya is the Mediterranean coast’s so-famous city resort and tourist destination hosting over 15 million tourists a year. It is not difficult to see why so many visit Antalya; it is a large, attractive city boasting a fabulous climate, excellent shops and facilities, stunning views, beaches, a world class marina and a fascinating past. The Old Town ( Kaleici ) makes up the heart of Antalya City with its pretty walled interior a warren of cobbled alleys ideal for exploring. Fancy little shops, restaurants and boutiques are all waiting to be discovered, the locals too happy to haggle you into buying a leather handbag, souvenir, genuine fake or some jewellery. In contrast, the newer districts, such as Konyaalti beach area and Lara beach district, play home to modern day Antalya. Here you find fancy holiday apartments and condos, numerous 5 star hotels, shopping malls, government buildings and all inclusive resorts.
