Little remains of the major Roman port. However, Hadrian’s Gate or the three gates is a triumphal arch not to be missed for those who like ruins. It was built to honour the Roman emperor’s visit in 130 A.D.
The tower of tawny stone, the Hidirlik Tower, built by the Romans around the second century was originally square, then a short time later the circular tower was added. It has been used as a lighthouse in more recent years. It has good views of the harbour.
Looking at the locally offered attractions and tours is the first thing a movie location scout will do. Here is a collection of locally offered tours to start your research. If we have made a film it will be on our Doris Visits cruise port YOUTUBE channel which is approaching two million views. Any film should be listed here under the port name. Please take a few minutes to watch that too as we often find gems and explain the local buses as well as hit the highlights.
Take a cable car ride to the top of Tahtali Mountain, at 2,365 meters above sea level. Enjoy spectacular views of the Antalya coastline from above.
