Why don't we go for a one day trip to Alanya, the unofficial capital of the Turkish Riviera? We 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!Kleopatra Beach, Damlatas Cave - the gems of the Turkish Riviera
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 underground 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 drifting 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 center 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.

You have spent your holiday in Alanya. Congratulations! The east coast of the Mediterranean Sea was very appreciated even in ancient times and through the mediaeval history. There are traces of it literally at every corner. Let's go to explore them together
Well, to know it, you must see the town and adjacent beaches from a bird's-eye view. The landmark of the town - Alanya Castle - is a large complex on the hillside with the medieval fortress which comes from the 13. Century on the top of the hill. It used to be very important and used to have over 130 towers, nowadays there are mainly ruins, but it's worth climbing up the narrow paths. There are some functional sacral buildings and by the impressive view of the seacoast with the harbour you will be astonished.
