Antalya's old town also known as Kaleici, is a picturesque part of the city and is full of character with narrow winding cobbled streets once enclosed in the ancient city walls. A pedestrian zone in the centre features a landmark stone tower, the Grooved Minaret and a statue of Attalus, while the Roman arch known as Hadrian's Gate, can be found at one of the entrances.
The area is great for day trips to nearby sites of interest such as the Phaselis and Olympos ancient ruins, Duden and Kursunlu waterfalls, the Roman theatre of Aspendos and the Termessos archaeological site found high on the Gulluk Mountain National Park.
