Things to do in Side: Full day sightseeing trip to Antalya city from Side
Antalya is one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean. This full day tour will take you to the city center of Antalya. Beyond being a typical Mediterranean city, you should see this beautiful city with a magnificent color coming from the depths of history.
Antalya is not just an airport name. There is a magnificent city 10 km west of the airport. The name of this unique city is Antalya. The city of Antalya is not on the seafront and is built on rocks like a cliff called "Falez". It is not in a zero position with the Mediterranean Sea. The regions which are at the zero position with the Mediterranean are located in the west and east of the city and the ancient harbor of old Antalya.
In the second century BC, Attalos, the king of Bergama, came to the region and took Side under siege but could not capture Side despite all his efforts. Thereupon, the king Attalos returned to the present place of the city of Antalya and established a city here. They named it Attaleia.
There are many interesting points of interest in Antalya. The most important place to visit is the ancient harbor and the old Antalya which is located around the harbor. Old Antalya attracts attention with its very special old residence houses. These houses are detached and all have bay windows on the upper floors. These houses are under protection. It is forbidden to build modern buildings instead of what you would see as ruins. However, old houses can be reconstructed in accordance with the original.
On the upper side of the ancient harbor of Antalya, there is a republic square dominating the harbor. And next to this square is the grooved architecture and the old clock tower. You can watch the ancient harbor and the dazzling old Antalya from the republic square dominating the ancient harbor.
You will enjoy walking through the narrow but charming streets of Old Antalya. While sipping your coffee in the cafeterias overlooking the ancient harbor, the view of the surroundings will give you great pleasure. You can visit the inside of the historic mosque next to the old clock tower. It's free. However, the visit to the fluted minaret is chargeable.
Before coming to the city center of Antalya, west of Antalya, going to the center of the cable car on the way to Kemer 600 meters high hill by taking the cable car will take a panoramic view to the city of Antalya and the Mediterranean Sea. The round-trip fee for the cable car is included in the tour price.
An extra 1 hour boat trip from the ancient harbor is possible. To do this, you need to register with your tour guide.
Antalya city center, Old Antalya, the Republic Square, the Old Clock Tower is a great bazaar around and you can find everything there at very reasonable prices.
