Today we travel by bus to the largest Turkish city on the western Mediterranean coast; Antalya. The journey will take around 4hrs.
A fantastic mix of city sophistication and old-world charm makes Antalya a great place to explore. The relatively unspoilt and restored Kaleici, the old city area, is now a historical zone and protected from modern development. With its palm-lined boulevard, internationally-acclaimed marina and old castle, Antalya is a popular destination.
Take an orientation walk with your leader to get your bearings and check out some of the popular attractions. The rest of the afternoon is free to explore on your own.
Some options here include the Antalya Museum, which offers a fascinating glimpse of history and life in this region. The Suna and Inan Kirac Kaleici Museum is located in an Antalya mansion and set up to show ambient life in an Ottoman house. Karaalioglu Parki, with its lovely flowers and great sea views, is a popular park for locals to go for a stroll.
On Day 9 we travel to the ancient and impressive sight of the ruined city Termessos.
Termessos lies about 30km North West of Antalya, high in the Travertine mountains and is one of the best preserved ancient cities of Turkey.
Alexander the Great once likened the city to an Eagle's nest as he failed to conquer it back in 333 BC.
You could spend hours exploring this remarkable site but by far the Theatre is one of the most breathe taking of all the remains. It once seated more then 4,000 people and at an altitude of almost 1000 metres it's hard not to be impressed by this theatre in the clouds.
There are no activities planned for the final day and you are able to depart the accommodation at any time.
