Perched on the coastal cliffs of the Mediterranean in the area of southwest Turkey that is also known as Anatolia, the port city of Antalya is surrounded by the Taurus mountain range and is a well-known international resort town. Situated 300 kilometers from Istanbul, Antalya features many small peninsulas and natural bays, along with narrow coastal plains and many areas where the mountains plunge directly into the sea.

 
The restored, historical town center of Antalya, known as Kaleici, is located on a rocky plain close to the actual coast, but urban sprawl now extends all the way to the Kepezustu Plain inland. Despite the variety of shopping, bars, restaurants, hotels and clubs that are now located here, its restoration won the Golden Apple tourism Prize and the old town is sure to delight visitors with its ancient architecture and traces of exotic cultures.
 
The climate here is characteristically Mediterranean, with an average of 300 sunny days every year, and hot, dry summers that are followed by moderate, rainy winters. Although the Taurus mountain range protects Antalya from the colder, northerly winds, the sea breezes help make the summer months comfortable.
