About Antalya

A booming clifftop resort

This booming clifftop resort town on the South-Western Turkish coast keeps its good looks and fine weather well into October. It's even said that the original Saint Nicholas - aka Santa Claus - was from around here. That comes as no surprise from an ancient city steeped in history, courtesy of its Lycian, Pamphylian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman influences. For a lesson in ancient civilisation, just take your pick.

With its traffic-free cobblestone alleys lined by a plethora of finely restored old stone buildings, Antalya's Kaleici (Old Town) is the best area to lay your head if you want to soak up the atmosphere of this ancient town. Restoring a row of Ottoman houses to their previous grandeur, the Tuvana Hotel (Karanlik Sokak 18) is an intimate boutique-style treat. A step down in price but still dripping with old-world charm are Villa Perla (Hesapci Sokak 26) and Mediterra Art Hotel (Zafer Sokak 5). Both have swimming pools to cool off in after a hard day spent strolling the alleys. For something cheaper, White Garden Pansion (Hesapci Gecidi 9) is a smart deal with oodles of character.

If you're after a special Turkish souvenir, Hesapci Sokak in the Kaleici is where you should begin your shopping hunt. This narrow alley is lined with shops selling hand-painted ceramic work, copperware and lushly coloured carpets. For cheaper trinkets, check out the parade of dinky stalls which line the road leading down to the Roman Harbour. Full of shops selling Turkish delight, spice and halva, the Dogu Garaji Market in the centre of Antalya (off Cebasoy Caddesi) is a vibrant, local affair. Dive into the chaos to search out your treasure.

The Kaleici area is home to the finest restaurants in Antalya. Seraser (Karanlik Sokak 18) dishes up Mediterranean-fusion dishes with stylish flair. Overlooking the harbour, Club Arma (Yatlimani 42) has views to die for and a seafood menu to savour. If you're looking for a good value kebab meal, head outside of the old city walls to Ataturk Caddesi and its surrounding streets. There are plenty of places for a drink in Antalya, but the perfect place to sip a beer as sunset sinks over the sea is the Terrace Bar (Hidirlik Sokak) with its dazzling cliff-side position.
