Antalya City Tour
Antalya was founded by, and named for a former King of Pergamum, Attalus / Attaleia. It was a prosperious port town and so the city was surrounded by thick stone defensive walls to protect it from invaders. In this tour you will explore the charming old city area of Antalya, and then head out to see Antalya’s famous Duden waterfalls. This day tour allows you to maximise your time in Antalya, and offers a great mix of history and chill time.
You will be picked up from hotel and then when commence our tour which includes the Old City (Marina) area and Antalya’s famous Clock Tower. We then head to the triple-arched Hadrian’s Gate the last surviving gate of the old city walls, constructed in 130AD to commemorate a visit by the Emperor Hadrian.
Our next visit is to the Broken Minaret (Kesik Minare), also located in the old city area. The Broken Minaret has had a colourful history – first built as a Roman temple, later converted into a Byzantine church, damaged in the Arab invasions, then converted into a mosque in the 13th Century when the Sultanate of Rum took Antalya. It became a church again when Antalya was taken from the Seljuks by the Crusader King of Cyprus and finally being converted back into a mosque during the rule of Sehzade Korkut. We will then take a look at Hidirlik Tower which is located where the land walls of the old city meet the sea walls. Today it is used as a lighthouse.
After a lunch break we visit the must-see Duden Waterfalls, whose waters cascade over the cliffs and empty into the Mediterranean.
We finish the day with a visit to the Antalya Archaeological Museum, and then you will be dropped off at your hotel.
