Antalya – The Highland City

Related imageThe city is named over the coastline it is based on. The city is surrounded by the western coasts of the gulf and looks absolutely adorable with the transparent blue waters. The city is rich in its cultural and historical heritage. The city has to be traveled on foot as the streets and the lanes here are cobbled up and very narrow, it is mostly that only one vehicle can get out in one time, so for me, it was better on foot or if you get too tired, grab a bike. There are many beautiful beaches in this city that you can go and relax or have fun with your family. The sea breezes of the city keep the atmosphere very mildly cool, providing with near perfect weather to roam around.

Old Harbor

The city is housed around a bunch of low down cliffs and waters which gives the city a very iconic and incredible look to be visited and enjoyed. The old harbor is the most famously visited place in Antalya, it is filled with shops regarding every need a human being would require, starting from quirky cafes and restaurants to the parlors and shopping destinations it holds everything in this one place and being so close to the coastline, it also serves as the trading port for Antalya. You will love the quality and flavors of the seafood that is offered here by the restaurant, all of them spicy and intense. The most famous dish you can find here is falafel crumbled fish with caviar hummus; the dish is very exotic and expensive but extremely worth it.

Hadrian’s Gate

Hadrian’s gate is one of the main tourists attracting offering Antalya could ever make. This is the entry to the high rise town of Antalya that is Kaleîcî. The walls on the gate have been preserved from the early centuries of the Romans and the Greeks. The walls are mostly grey and black colored and have engraved Islamic sayings in them. The ceiling of the gate is also carved with various names of the rulers that have defined the city to what it is today. The walkway from the gate is made of glass like a really small pull, it is exquisite.
