When you arrive at Antalya, be prepared to be delighted by things to do, places to go and people to see. You can fly directly to Antalya Havalimani Airport (AYT) with cheap flights from London. The low cost and holiday charter airlines pretty much have it all covered!
Search for your tickets to Antalya well in advance. The best time to head to Antalya is in April when the weather is warm (perfect for tanning on the beach) but the heat isn't unbearable as it is during the summer months.

Whether you’re planning to take in the nightlife in Antalya or spend your days soaking in the sun or on tours of the local museums and attractions, this beautiful city has many events and festivals you’re sure to appreciate while on holidays in Antalya.
Old Quarter: The old quarter of Kaleiçi is particularly interesting. Its narrow, winding streets are what's left of the ancient part of the city. While there are many entrances through the ancient city wall, the prettiest is through Hadrian's Gate, built by the Roman emperor Hadrianus as the main city entrance.
Beaches: As one of Turkey's trendiest holiday spots, you can bet the beaches are something worth travelling for. Having a rental car in Antalya is the easiest way to get to the beaches and back again.
Hamams: There are several historical and traditional bath houses in Antalya and the surrounding region. Sefa Hamam dates back to the 13th century and Balik Pazari Hamam, just 700 years old.

If you wander around with your luggage it won't be long until you're approached by someone offering hostel accommodations, called pensiyon. Most tourists arrive on package holidays, keeping the big resort hotels in Antalya full.
