Why don't we go for a one day trip to Alanya, the unofficial capital of the Turkish Riviera? Our excursion will start with a visit to the Taurus mountains, from where you will see a breathtaking panorama of the city. After that, you will climb the hidden pathways of the famous landmark, Alanya Kalesi (Alanya Castle) up to the fortress at the top of the hill - the views from here will blow you away! Sparkling turquoise waters, sunny beaches and the atmospheric harbour is a view your eyes crave for. The fortress, built in 13th century by Seljuq Turks, has around `130 towers! Wandering through its ruins, you'll encounter a little mosque, dating back to 14th century, but functioning up to this day. Your walk around the Alanya Castle will also take you pass the walls of old Byzantine church, caravanserai and bazaar. Enjoy your little escapade into the wild, right in the middle of the city!
On our Alanya City Tour we'll take you to Kleopatra Beach, probably the most beautiful beach of the Turkish Riviera. Here's where the Dripping Stone Cave (Damlataş Cave) hides, providing the tourists with magnificent undeground forms and a moment of refreshment from the sun. Afterwards, we will make ourselves a little break by a Dim River (Dimçay), right on the side of the Taurus Mountains. You'll have the pleasure to refresh in its crystal clear waters, resting on the drifing platforms and enjoying delicious food 'in Turkish style'.
Finally, at the end of your one day trip to Alanya, you will have free time right in the centre of the city. You can use it for shopping and trying to bargain on Friday bazaar, offering vast array of fruits, vegetables and spices (recommended!) or lazily strolling along the promenade in Alanya Harbour.
