Antalya - Because of the archaeological and natural riches of the area, Antalya is also known as the Turkish Riviera. The sun, sea, nature and history combine to form a very popular resort.

With its palm-lined boulevard, internationally-acclaimed marina and old castle with traditional architecture, all set amidst a modern city, Antalya is a major tourist center in Turkey. The main area of interest in the city is the central old quarter within the Roman walls, known as Kaleici. There are also many interesting and informative museums located in the region.

Aspendos - Aspendos dates back to the 5th century B.C. The theatre was built in the 2nd century A.D. and is one of the best preserved theatres to be found today. The theatre holds 17000 spectators. Today it is used for concerts & festivals. In addition to the theatre the agora, basilica, nymphaeum and 15 km of aqueducts are to be seen. Outdoor concerts are held here at Aspendos which are well worth a visit. Live music under a sky of stars – perfect!

Side -The exact date of its founding is not known. In the language of Anatolia, "Side" means Pomegranate. From inscriptions it appears that Side dates back to the Hittites. Visitors attention is particularly drawn to the city gates and walls. The old baths have been restored and turned into a museum, in which are exhibited some of the statues and art treasures found in Side. Side has colonnaded streets, a triumphal arch, harbour, baths, fountains, cisterns, aqueducts, temples and an agora.

Termessos - is perhaps the most interesting ancient city in the Antalya region. It is a Psidian city built at a height of 1050 meters in the Taurus Mountains. Termessos constitutes an unusual synthesis of a large number of rare plants and animal species, which are under protection in the Termessos National Park. A visit to this site requires time and the stamina to walk uphill, because Termessos is built entirely on a mountainous area difficult to access.
