3 day tour of Antalya
from Istanbul


Day - 1: Istanbul to Antalya
Early in the morning, we will meet you at your hotel and transfer you to the Istanbul domestic airport for your 1-hour flight from Antalya . Upon arrival, you will then be met and transferred to your hotel that is located in the city's historical center. After checking in, you will have free time to relax and explore Antalya at your own pace. Overnight stay in Antalya

Day 2 - Antalya - (B/L)

After breakfast, we will take you on a full-day tour of Side, Perge, Aspendos and to the Manavgat Waterfalls.
Sites you'll see today:
* Perge is a magnificent example of how an ancient classical city looked. Records date it to roughly the 4th century BC. It was settled by the Greeks following the Trojan War, then visited by St. Paul and his disciples when it was a leading city of Pamphylia. It then fell under the leadership of Alexander the Great and eventually to the Byzantines. It was during the reign of Constantine that Perge became an important center of Christianity.
* Side was the site of Pamphyilia's largest port and was probably first colonized in the 7th BC. Coming from Cyprus, St. Paul would have very likely visited en route to Perge (another site you'll see today). The great ruins are among the most notable in Asia Minor. They cover a large promontory where a wall and a moat separate it from the mainland. During medieval times, the wall and moat were repaired, and the promontory housed a wealth of structures.
* Manavgat Waterfalls is where we'll have a cool rest, right next to the falls. Local vendors offer beverages and ice cream.
* Aspendos and Aspendos Theatre is another beautiful example of a well-preserved classical city that is most famous for its theatre, which dates to 160-180 AD. Depending on performance dates, we may be lucky enough to see a summer evening opera or ballet performance in a theatre that's widely-considered to be the most intact classical theatre in existence.
After the tour return to the hotel. Overnight in Antalya.
