The Top 10 Things to Do and See in Antalya, Turkey.
Walk around the ruins of Phaselis

The Old Lycian port city of Phaselis was once an important trading point in the region. Walk around the ruins of the city and imagine how life was under the rule of Alexander the Great. Remains also include an aqueduct, amphitheatre and the main market street, which connects two harbors. Today, the area is located in a national park, where you can find stunning beaches. There are no restaurants near by, but if you plan ahead and bring a picnic you’ll be guaranteed a wonderful afternoon.

In the ancient times, the flames of Chimaera served to guide sailors from crashing on the rocks. The name Chimaera means eternal flame, and even today you can see flames burning from rocks at any point in time. The area consists of over twenty vents emitting gases, which spontaneously ignite. The flames are obviously best seen at night, but don’t forget to bring your flashlight as you have to climb up the hill in the dark!. The Chimaera burning flames are located above the Temple of Hephaistos, and are one of the greatest natural phenomenons on earth.

Relax in Karaalioğlu Parkı
This is one of Antalya’s major parks, where you can relax under the shade during the hot days or walk around in the evening. At the edge of the park is located the ancient Roman fortress Hidirlik, overlooking the old harbor.

It is a 14 meters tall tower, offering great views on the city and the Gulf. Come in the early evening and enjoy the panoramic view of the old Roman harbor in the setting sun. The park is also a great picnic spot and it’s always open and free of charge.

Broken Minaret of the Korkut Mosque
The Broken Minaret (Kesik Minare) of the Korkut Mosque is located in Antalya’s old town. The graceful minaret was destroyed in the 19th century by fire and the broken ruins are all that’s left of the building’s long history. First built as a Roman temple in 2nd century, it was converted into a Byzantine church in 600s. After the Seljuk Turkish Empire invasion, the church became a mosque and the minaret was added. During the crusades in 1361, the mosque was converted yet again to a church. Finally, it became a mosque during the Ottoman rise to power in 15th century, the ruins of which are there today.
