Antalya, Turkey

The city of Antalya is located in a gulf cut short in the west by wild and strange mountains. Antalya emerges as a mix of pretty Mediterranean town inside its Roman walls and a sprawling modern city that only puts efficiency and growth first.
Antalya is deservedly a popular destination in this part of Turkey. It has quite a bit more sophistication than more dedicated tourist resorts, being a city of business, culture and learning, not only souvenir stalls and funny waitors.
