Everyone can find something to do in Antalya. Aspendos and Antalya’s maze-like core old town are among the greatest sites to visit if you want to get your sightseeing fix, and the city is ideally situated to serve as your base for day trips around the historic tourist monuments dispersed throughout the adjacent hills. But for many guests, history is barely mentioned. In contrast, Antalya is all about the beaches that border the shore and taking boat tours to see the views of the Mediterranean coastline.
450 thousand 283 tourists travelled by flight to the city between January 1 and February 28, according to data from the Governorship of Antalya. This sum is known as the “best start of all time” in history.
