Antalya is an idyllic place to visit and has much more to offer than its ever-popular sun-filled beaches. Both the city centre and the surrounding countryside have several ancient landmarks and ruins from the Roman and medieval eras, and the streets of Antalya are filled with beautiful historic buildings and mosques from different ages. The old quarter is called Kaleici and is known for its narrow, winding streets and noteworthy historic architecture, characterized by half-timbered houses, stone arches and turrets, and lovely tucked-away gardens. The old harbour is another favourite tourist attraction, set into the cliffs and bordered by an ancient citadel wall. In addition to these old areas of the city, there is the up-and-coming district of Konyaalti, just west of the city centre, which is full of long stretches of prime beachfront and lots of new buildings and hotels, as well as some musuems. There are also many outdoor activities that Antalya and its surrounding region is perfect for, including scuba diving, sailing, paragliding, rafting, mountain climbing, biking, and more. And because Antalya has become a major tourist centre, the city is full of different kinds of restaurants, shops, pubs and other interesting places to visit.
