The main city along the Mediterranean coast, Antalya is a major seaside
resort with a beautiful harbor. It is sometimes
referred to as the Turkish Riviera. Still
standing on the cliffs which surround Antalya are the ancient city walls and
ramparts built by the Greeks. The population is about 500,000. Many
homes in the area have solar hot water heaters on roofs. Most houses and
apartments are less than 5 years old. Main industry is tourism (mostly
German and Russian). Surrounding mountains with many waterfalls, rafting,
and golf courses.
Town square was above the harbor where we walked past many restaurants. The public park was across the street from the museum. There was a beautiful Sunset that evening.
