Tours from Antalya to Alanya
licensed guide information
Discover the contrasting charms of Alanya on this day trip. A mixed bag of old and new, it’s a bustling resort with a huge fortress towering over a cobbled old town and modern hotels. You’ll start with a look round Seljuk Castle. Topping a promontory jutting into the Mediterranean, its fortifications were built in the 13th century on the remnants of Roman and Byzantine castles. Explore its watchtower-studded battlements and peer through the holes from where hot oil was poured onto enemies. Then continue to the harbour and Dim Cave. This giant chamber is choc-full of stalactites and stalagmites. It’s then time for an included lunch by the waterside, soaking up the sunshine and sea views as you eat. You’ll finish with time to explore the old town on your own. Enclosed by the castle’s rambling walls, its narrow streets are filled with shops, cafes and interesting sights.
