Antalya’s old quarter, clustered around a charming harbour, is great for nightlife and shopping.

2 Köprülü Kanyon

Spanned by a graceful Roman bridge, the Köprülü river gorge is ideal for novice whitewater rafters.

Arguably the most dramatically situated of all Turkey’s ancient sites, perched on the edge of a precipitous gorge.

4 Aspendos

Stunningly preserved Roman theatre, the impressive venue for an annual opera and ballet festival.

5 Uzuncaburç

Wander along the streets and through the temples of the ruined city, now a sleepy mountain village.

6 Kızkalesi

Recline on the sandy Mediterranean shore and ponder the serenity of the offshore Maiden’s Castle.

7 Antakya’s Archeological Museum

Don’t miss the immaculately preserved collection of Roman mosaics.

For a taste of the Hatay try the unique fiery muhammara, served with flat bread and a chilled beer.
