Major city for the region, with a population just under a million people.


Not technically part of the Lycian Way, though this is where everyone generally starts or finishes their adventure (the endpoint itself is the nearby village of Geyikbayırı, accessible by dolmuş).



The city has an airport. Most people fly to / from here via Istanbul.


There are many excellent attractions in Antalya – you could easily spend a week in the city. At the very least, a visit to Antalya’s excellent museum is highly recommended. Likewise for Hadrian’s Gate (among many other interesting ruins).


Naturally, there is a full range of amenities here, including lots of pensions and hotels, restaurants, post office, markets, and so on. We recommend finding something in or close to the historic district.
