Antalya is the fifth-most populous city in Türkiye. Mediterranean coastline and sunny beaches, filled with world-class dining, resorts, hotels, and nightlife add to Antalya's popularity.
One of Antalya's main attractions is its archeological sites from the Greek and Roman era. The ancient ruins at Olympos Archeological Site, dating back to the second century B.C., are all that remains of an important Lycian city that became abandoned in the 15th century. Together with the sites of the ancient cities Phaselis and Idyros, it is part of the Olympos Beydağları National Park. The Archaeological Museum showcases artifacts from the Paleolithic Age to the Ottoman Era, giving visitors a fascinating insight into the region's extensive history.
Antalya and its surrounding areas boast breathtaking natural wonders. The Upper Düden Waterfalls located 14 km northeast of Antalya provide an exhilarating experience. Additionally, the Lower Düden Waterfalls en route to Lara Beach provide a charming sight as they cascade directly into the sea
