Antalya (population 2 million), “capital” of the Turkish Mediterranean Coast, is a sprawling modern city with a small, charming historic center, a good archeology museum,long sunny beaches to east and west, the Turquoise Coast’s busiest airport, good hotels, lots to see and do, and dramatic sea and mountain views (map).
The historic center, called Kaleici (Old Antalya) surrounds the Roman harbor. Many buildings here date from Ottoman times, a few from Roman times, and some have been restored as houses, boutique hotels, pensions and restaurants.
