Available locations in Antalya:
Antalya sits pleasantly on the Turkish Riviera and is well known for its beautiful beaches, breathtaking mountains and great selection of Greco-Roman ruins. Many visitors come to the region to simply stay in one of the many resorts, but those who crave adventure normally use car rental in Antalya to explore the city and its old town before heading to the impressive theatre at Aspendos or into the mountains.
The old town, Kaleici, is the highlight of Antalya, with many of its buildings dating back to Roman times. The most famous structure is Hadrians Gate, which was built on the order of the Roman emperor in the 2nd century BC. The Museum of Archeology has been set up to detail the many ancient ruins in the area.
Driving through the Taurus Mountain range presents tourists with many great views of the surrounding region. There are opportunities to stop off at places where the mountains have crumbled into the sea and formed beaches which can be accessed on foot. There is an extensive amount of ruins outside the city. The best one is the theatre at Aspendos, which is still in use as the host of the annual Aspendos International Ballet and Opera Festival.
Best time to visit
In autumn, temperatures average at 20°C during the day time, meaning exploring the old ruins is not so energy-draining. Most of the city's festivals are staged in late September and November. However, if sun and sea are the main reasons for visiting Antalya, then the summer months from June to August are a great time to visit.
Car rental in Antalya
Car hire in Antalya is available in the city and at the international airport nearby. It affords visitors the option of travelling around the region at their own pace rather than being ferried around by coach tour. Traffic in the city centre can be congested, making car rental best suited to travel outside the city. Compare car hire prices online before travel to get the best deal.
