Antalya Destination

Antalya, Turkey’s principal holiday resort in the Mediterranean region (ancient Pamphylia), is an attractive city with shady palm-lined boulevards, a prize-winning marina on the Mediterranean. In the picturesque old quarter, Kaleici, narrow winding streets and old wooden houses abut the ancient city walls. Lately, many foreigners have bought (and continue to buy) property in and around Antalya for their holidays or for the retirement. It became a popular area especially for the German and Russian nationals. During the winter months its population is around 2 million, but in the summer times it doubles.

The region around Antalya offers sights of astonishing natural beauty as well as awesome historical remains. You can walk behind the cascade, a thrilling experience, at the Upper Düden Waterfalls, 14 km northeast of Antalya. On the way to Lara Beach, the Lower Düden Waterfalls plunge straight into the sea. The nearby rest area offers an excellent view of the falls; the view is even more spectacular from the sea. Kursunlu Waterfalls and Nilüfer Lake, both 18 km from Antalya are two more places of superb natural beauty.

Ancient City

The ancient city of Aphrodisias, dedicated to the goddess of love Aphrodite, was a Hellenistic city which also flourished under Roman and Byzantine rule. Excavations in the 24-meter-high (78 ft) theater hill have revealed layers of settlement going back to the Bronze Age (c. 2800-2200 BC). It was founded in the 5th c. BC and flourished under the Roman Empire (1st c. BC-4th c. AD). Mark Antony recognized the autonomy of Aphrodisias in the 1st c. BC. In the Byzantine period it was first the seat of an archbishopric, then of the metropolitan of Caria. In the 6th c. AD the name of Aphrodisias was changed to Stavropolis, the city of the Cross, to erase the pagan goddess of love from peopleís minds. As the capital of Caria Aphrodisias was finally called Caria which then became Geyre in Turkish. Later in the 13th century it was abandoned. The city was buried by a series of earthquakes.
Aphrodisias was primarily known as a center for the arts, specifically sculpture. The Aphrodisias School of Sculpture had a distinctive style and was very well circulated throughout the Greek and Roman world. Statues with corresponding signatures were discovered from Spain to present day Germany and virtually everywhere in the Roman world. The existence of Aphrodisias was almost forgotten until a Turkish professor, Dr. Kenan Erim, of  New York University received a grant from National Geographic to excavate the site in the 1960ís. His archaeological work revealed a city of vast importance.Read more…

Are Gulet Cruise Vacations Your Holiday Style?

If you are about to be a new gulet vacationer, the information below may give you a better perspective on what to expect on a gulet charter. Needless to say, all gulet charter experiences will not be the same for everyone, with the following information we just want to give a general idea and outline the basics for your convenience.

HOTEL ROOMS vs. GULET CABINS
Hotel rooms are built according to building standards just like the gulet cabins being built according to their size and standards. Like any building, you will have more head space to stand up in your hotel room than you would in your gulet cabin, and this will only affect you if you are very tall, therefore expect a reduction in ceiling height. Hotel rooms can offer a larger occupancy area than some gulet cabins. This will depend on the gulet you have rented. However, there are also some VIP or High Deluxe gulet cabins larger than hotel rooms.

SAILING vs. CRUISING
Gulets are categorized as motorsailers. This means that the gulets not only sail but also may use their engines for cruising. They are by no means a sailing vessel alone. Sailing takes time from one destination to another. Hypothetically if you are on a one week holiday and will be travelling from Rhodes to Fethiye, with all the stops in between, there is no way that just by sailing you will be able to take time and enjoy your vacation and also cover that distance. Generally on itineraries that are arranged for a week, the sails on gulets are anywhere between 1 to 3 times.

The variation will depend on the itinerary, the gulet, and the weather. Read More at http://www.turkyacht.com/faqs
