                   LOCAL ATTRACTIONS

The city of Antalya was founded during the 2nd century BC by Attalus II,
the king of Pergamon, who named the city Attaleia after himself. The
Romans and Seljuks occupied the city before it came under Ottoman rule.
In every part of the city, the marks of these historical periods can be
observed. The Kaleigi section of Antalya is one of the most interesting
parts of the city with its ancient Seljuk and Ottoman mosques. Antalya
further broadens its reputation with the nearby ancient city Perge and
Aspendos theatre. Perge, 18 km from Antalya, is one of the best
preserved cities of ancient Pamphylia. Aspendos is 46 km from Antalya.
The galleries, stage decorations and the acoustics in the theater all
reflect the success of architecture. Side is an ancient harbor with its
magnificent ancient theater near the agora, and the creamy white columns
of the Apollo Temple make striking contrast against the blue sea.
Waterfalls, beaches and national parks are places where nature displays
her beauty in Antalya. There are also many excellent shopping
opportunities, including folk art items, handicrafts, museum
reproductions, leather goods and carpets.


There are two main alternatives for travelling to Antalya. The first one
is a direct flight from a major European location to Antalya airport.
Turkish Airlines have direct flights from many European cities to
Antalya. The second alternative is to fly to Istanbul and then take a
domestic flight to Antalya. For flight schedules please check with a
travel agency.
