What awaits you
My excursion is characterized by an individual approach to each guest. We can always discuss the walking line and build a route according to your wishes.
The old town of Kaleici is an ancient attraction In the narrow streets, we first of all find objects of the Roman Empire, which brutally ruled here for 1000 years. On a leisurely stroll, we will visit three observation platforms with marvelous views of the sights, the Tauride Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. You will be interested in the small Ethnographic Museum of Antalya, the caravanserai and, of course, the picturesque port. And if the entrance to the roof is open, then you will also see the Old Town from an unusual perspective
A glimpse of eras through their names Historical figures will appear before you as living people with their deeds, doubts and successes. The Pergamon king Attal II, the Hadrian emperor, the brave conquering sultans, the reformer Atatürk: learning about them, you will immerse yourself in different eras - Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk, Ottoman and modern. I will also talk about modern secular Turkey, about the traditions and rituals that remain important to this day
Religion and mosques - understandable and fascinating What gods did the founder of Antalya worship? We will talk about faith in this land from paganism to late Christianity and analyze Muslim concepts. And the background will be the mosques of the Old City. You will discover the secret of the Iivli complex, where you will see the House of Dervishes and a 14th century mosque. In the harbor of Kaleici, visit the cozy Iskele Mosque, which has a clean spring. Pass by a truncated minaret. There will be many more mosques - each keeps its own legend.
