Kaleici




Kaleiši is the historical old city of Antalya. In the ancient it was the Roman town, then the Byzantine, then the Seljuk Turkish, and finally the Ottoman Turkish town. This part of the city consists of massive stone walls, meandering streets, and picturesque old houses built so close they often overshadow the narrow lanes. Kaleci was restored trying to recover and to maintain its ancient remains, as result of these restorations it has turned into a major tourist centre with guest-houses, bars, shops and restaurants, and the Roman harbour has been turned into a modern, well-equipped marina.

There are several entrances to Kaleiši, but the most convenient is Kalekapisi, and the most picturesque and historic is Hadrian's Gate.
