Capital of the Turkish Riviera, the coastal city is situated on travertine cliffs 30 metres above the Mediterranean. The view is fabulous, the circular harbour captivating and the garden houses with their hipped roofing simply enchanting.
The ancient city is known for having the world's best-preserved theatre of antiquity. Despite being almost 2,000 years old, the Roman theatre remains complete to this day. In addition, the remains of the Roman aqueducts also draw crowds.
Located on the eastern part of the Pamphylian coast, the ancient city's enviable bay and harbour area made it one of Southern Turkey's most important maritime trade centres. Many ancient ruins make the spot an important place on the visiting lists of thousands of Turkey's tourists.
Freshwater fun and white water rafting - those that take on the challenge of the Manavgat River will at sometime come to the waterway's famous waterfall. A romantic spot and a great place to cool off on a hot day.
