There’s so much to see in Turkish Riviera. Over just a few hundred kilometres you can find yourself on top of a snowy mountain top, or cycling through the lush green countryside, or sunbathing on a golden beach. There are whitewashed towns to explore, and Moorish palaces and monuments, museums and shops to visit, as well as plenty of opportunity to experience the region’s outstanding cuisine and famous sherry.
With Antalya Viply Bus Limo Shuttle’s Turkish Riviera sightseeing transfers, our experienced uniformed drivers are happy to take you to the heart of this amazing region, so you can discover its traditions, favourite dishes and local attractions. These are some of our favourite places to explore.
Aspendos / Perge
One of Turkey’s oldest historical towns, Aspendos is just over an 40 minutes drive from Antalya. With its museums and monuments, as well as birdwatching, hiking, canoeing or caving, there’s something here for the whole family. Before we pick you up after a day exploring, we recommend you sample a glass or two of the locally produced wine.
Geyikbayiri is a traditional Turkish town, nestled in the hillside besides Saklikent, with magnificent views of the coastline and just half an hour from Antalya. As well as boutiques and craft shops, there are also plenty of local attractions to explore. If you’re a chocolate lover, you can’t leave Geyikbayiri without visiting the local chocolate factory.
A cosmopolitan and bustling port city that’s steeped in history, Antalya is often referred to as the Capital of the Turkish Riviera. From the magnificent Mosques, the City Museum, and waterfall, Antalya’s most important landmark that looks down on the city, to the chic boutiques, designer shops and fabulous restaurants: there’s so much to do in Antalya. And we haven’t even mentioned the kilometres of sandy beaches.
Less than an 2’s drive from Antalya, is tiny Gazipasa, a quaint British outpost situated on the tip of Turkey. It’s famous for its greenhouses and banana gardens. Our advice is to stay late and enjoy the vibrant night scene, which includes cocktail bars, nightclubs, traditional pubs and the casino.
Just over an 30 minutes drive from Antalya, on Turkey’s southernmost tip, is the little fishing town of Belek. The narrow cobbled streets are perfect for an afternoon stroll. There’s also 10km of white sandy beaches too which are perfect for windsurfing. Other activities include horse riding on the beach, kite surfing, wind surfing, rock climbing and even scuba diving.
Thought by many to be the oldest city in Europe, the port city of Antalya is steeped in history. Less than a two hour drive from Antalya, Antalya sits on a peninsula, virtually surrounded by water, and there’s plenty to see here. Check out the Mosques with its museums. It’s known for being one of the most beautiful beaches in Antalya.
40km west and midway between Kumluca and mountains, Kemer is well known for its horses, flamenco and famous sherry wine. Take a trip to one of the city’s wine cellars to see how wine is made traditionally. Or visit the magnificent stallions of the famous Royal Turkish Rivieran School of Equestrian Art. For history lovers, the archaeological museum, is worth a visit.
You need to spend a day in Side to soak up all the atmosphere, history and culture this vibrant city has to offer. Old town tower, beach temple is the city’s famous landmark. A climb to the top gives 360 degree views over Side. For keen shoppers, there are numerous department stores and boutiques. But for something completely different, visit the old gypsy quarter of Manavgat, the home of tile-making, where you can watch the craftsmen at work in their studios.
Olimpos / Cirali
Located at the foot of the Taurus mountain range, Cirali is another Turkish city steeped in history. The famous Olympos, an exquisitely designed series of palaces and gardens, is not to be missed. Also take a wander round the quaint old streets in the city’s historic quarter and discover stalls selling items of Arabic craftwork, ethnic clothing and memorabilia that reflect Olympos mythological history.
