Must see · Neighborhood · Other
Also referred to as Old Antalya, Kaleici represents the historical center of the city. Up until World War II, it was one and the same city as Antalya, but rapid development in the decades since has created two cities. The historical center features narrow streets squeezed between old houses on the Roman harbor along the Mediterranean coast. Several entrances allow you access to the old town; the most historical and best-known is Hadrian's Gate. Wander the ancient city streets to find restaurants offering authentic Turkish dishes.

  • Beautiful nice and clean. Cant exoress my feelings in words. Happy I had visited that place. Shops were nice and clean. People were nice, happy and friendly. I'll come here next time too. In the summer don't forget the shades because it'll be too hot.
  • Nice sunsets, lovely to walk around the bazaars and restaurants. The vendors are friendly and not forceful. Winding cute streets down to the picturesque harbour. You could easily walk around here fora few hours before working up an appetite and choosing one of the many good places to eat. Food-wise I'd recommend the back alleys and side streets for better quality and value. Check Google reviews of places before you are tempted by the friendly staff outside since it's hit an miss at the harbour.
