Antalya, Turkey

My favourite photo from Antalya.

Antalya is the fifth most populous city in Turkey and the capital of its eponymous province. Located on Anatolia‘s flourishing southwest coast bordered by the Taurus Mountains. …

Antalya is Turkey’s biggest international sea resort, located on the Turkish Riviera. … A record 12.5 million tourists passed through the city in 2014. …

In 2015, the population was 2.288 million but it feels small city to the tourist staying in the ancient walled city, Kaleiçi;.

Myself and the rest of the very happy tourists enter and exit most often via Hadrian’s Gate.

Hadrian visited this outpost in 130.

I stayed only two nights my first visit prepping for a week long hike along the coast.

On my return I had more time to enjoy the sights.

They love statuary.

Atatürk on May Day. Plenty of police.

Evening walks are lovely.

Everyone who’s been to Antalya can recommend it. It’s very tourist friendly.
