Highly recommended places to visit in Antalya

Perge:

It is mesmerizing to wander through these majestic ruins. There are hardly any visitors on a weekday, so visiting on a weekday will give you the opportunity to enjoy the solitude and imagine the past. Refreshments are available and appreciated. These wonderful ruins really paint a picture of how it was like all those years ago.

Get to the stadium as it’s impressive, but you will probably need a guide for your visit, to make sure you get the most of this ancient town. Being able to see ancient bath houses, a Byzantine chapel, and ancient plumbing is rather amazing. The site is rather vast, and includes an agora area, gymnasiums, and a water system. You can stroll for half day, dreaming of what the site may have looked like many years ago

 

Kursunlu Waterfalls:

This waterfall is on one of the tributaries of the Aksu River,  from Antalya’s plateau to the coastal plain. It is about 40 km to the North-East of Antalya in the midst of a pine forest, and the environs provide a picnic and pleasure spot.

The place is quiet and beautiful. It brings you close to nature, and it offers a lovely atmosphere of turtles and birds. On the way to Kursunlu, there is a nice smelling pine forest, and the huge trees that fill the parking offering shadow and cool air. The way to the waterfall is very natural and well-taken care. You will get amazing views of the river bed and natural walkways to make you forget the little longer way to the waterfall. While walking along the river, you will find different picnic spots where you can relax and enjoy your day.

At the core, you will find the wonderfully preserved old city district of Kaleiçi that is just within the castle. This old city district is wrapped around a splendid Roman-era harbor with cliff top views of hazy blue mountain silhouettes that are worth raising a toast to.
