Stunning Coastline, history within the old city walls, unique nature, center of cultures… Antalya is a city where three out of four seasons are spring and the other is summer, where you can ski on a magnificent mountain in the morning and swim in the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean in the afternoon.
When King Attalos first set eyes on Antalya he called it “Paradise on Earth”. Its fertile soil and natural harbor made it favorable for settlers throughout the ages.
Therefore Antalya has a rich cultural heritage with many remains of an outstanding history.
