Antalya, Turkey Travel Guide

Last Updated: Dec 2023

Though Antalya is mostly known for package holidays at resorts well outside the city center, this is also an excellent cultural destination that has great weather most of the year. This is the largest city along Turkey’s Mediterranean coast, and many smaller cities are similarly affordable and worthwhile.
