Where To Stay In Antalya - KALEICI vs LARA
Both old district of Kaleici and the beach resort town of Lara offer a plethora of options like any other place, but if the idea of going back in time and navigating your way through a maze of cobbled streets flooded with centuries-old buildings, bars, and old bazaars turn you on, then Kaleici should totally be your cup of tea!
Not even kidding! Walking through the old houses in dilapidated neighborhood, quaint cafes, boutique hotels seems as if they have come straight from a period movie. Every turn offers timeless views and Instagram worthy pictures. It's fascinating to see how this old town still retains the quintessential old-world charm.
Kaleici (being completely different from it's modern counterpart!) has now become one of the important tourism centers of Antalya, offering best of both worlds, and this is exactly why you should plan on staying in Kaleici during your stay in Antalya!
