About Antalya


Antalya is the fifth-most populous city in Turkey as well as the capital of Antalya Province. It is seen as the “capital of tourism” in Turkey. Located on Anatolia’s southwest coast bordered by the Taurus Mountains, Antalya is the largest Turkish city on the Mediterranean coast outside the Aegean region with over 2.6 million people in its metropolitan area.

While the city itself only has modest elevation changes, Antalya has high mountains in all directions to its interior. With moisture being trapped, the local climate thus has high winter rainfall, while the interior bay setting result in very hot summers for a coastal city.

The city is Turkey’s biggest international sea resort, on the Turkish Riviera. Large-scale development and governmental funding has promoted tourism. Antalya has surpassed Paris and New York City to become the fourth most visited city in the world, with more than 16.5 million foreign visitors in 2023.
