Antakya is the seat of the Hatay Province in southern Turkey.In ancient times, Antakya was known as Antioch, and was for centuries one of the largest cities in the Roman Empire. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Besikli Magara and Hatay Tibbi Ve Aromatik Bitkiler Muzesi. Get some cultural insight at Ulu Mosque and Old City of Antakya. And it doesn't end there: browse for treasures at Uzun Carsi, see the interesting displays at Antakya Archaeological Museum, delve into the distant past at St Pierre Kilisesi, and take in the dramatic scenery at Harbiye Selalesi.

To see reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Antakya trip planner.

Traveling by car from Iskenderun to Antakya takes 1.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 13°C in January, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
