The Turkey that time forgot

Nestled in the heart of the modern, bustling metropolis of Antalya is the old town of Kaleici – a secret enclave that time forgot. Originally a Roman fortress, you’ll find it by passing through architecturally imposing gatehouses, which add to the sense that you’re stepping back in time. Once inside, you’ll discover a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets with lovingly restored classic buildings housing smart restaurants and souvenir stores.

At every turn there’s something to see, be it centuries-old doorways, witty satirical street art or knockout views across the bay. Kaleici holidays are for travellers who appreciate ancient history and impressive architecture, and yet at the same time crave contemporary dining, convenient access to the beach and the opportunity to enjoy a night out on the tiles, should the mood take them. Holidays to Kaleici in Turkey are for making memories that stand the test of time.
