Start your visit to Antalya in the historical city centre, which takes in Hadrian's Gate, Hidirlik Tower, Yivli Minaret, Kesik Minaret, and Kaleici with its narrow streets and historical houses and the ancient port. All are within an area of one square kilometer. You can cover all this on foot, which is a good thing as cars are banned on certain streets.
Kaleici can be visited at all hours of the day but the best time is towards evening. Many of the historical houses and mansions of Kaleici have been restored and a large number of them are being used as hotels, pensions, bars and shops.
Antalya is not a city with just sun, sea and sand. It has a great history especially in the Kaleici district.
