With a prime location along the Turkish Riviera, Antalya is the gateway to the Mediterranean, surrounded by the wild landscapes of the Taurus Mountains and some of Turkey’s most impressive archaeological sites. Here are your options for Antalya day tours.

Perge and Aspendos — 16 miles (25 km) northeast
The ancient Pamphylian cities of Perge and Aspendos, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, present some of Turkey’s most remarkably preserved Roman ruins. Day tours from Antalya often combine a visit to the archeological sites with the mountaintop Pisidian city of Termessos, the historic town of Side, or Manavgat Waterfall.

Phaselis — 34 miles (55 km) south
The ancient city of Phaselis lies just down the coast from Antalya, and the most scenic way to get there is by boat. A full-day cruise along Turkey’s Turquoise Coast means you’ll have plenty of time to explore the ruins, visit the lively port town, and enjoy swimming in the Mediterranean.

Demre, Myra, and Kekova — 87 miles (140 km) southwest
Another rewarding day trip itinerary will take you along the Mediterranean coast, stopping at the St. Nicholas Church in Demre, home to the tomb of the eponymous saint; the ancient Lycian ruins of Myra, with its series of tombs carved into the cliff sides; and a boat cruise to the sunken city of Kekova.

Pamukkale — 149 miles (240 km) northwest
Visiting the UNESCO-listed natural wonder of Pamukkale is a long day trip from Antalya, but it’s worth it to see one of Turkey’s most photographed sights. After admiring the stunning Cotton Mountain with its white travertine terraces, opt to take a dip in Cleopatra’s Pool, explore the neighboring ruins of Hierapolis, or visit the nearby city of Denizli.

Cappadocia — 336 miles (540 km) northeast
Head inland to discover the fairy chimneys, underground cities, and cave villages of Cappadocia, one of central Anatolia’s most enchanting regions. A day tour from Anatolia typically includes round-trip domestic flights and visits to highlights like Pasabag (Monk’s Valley), Göreme, Kaymakli underground city, and Uchisar Castle. 

Istanbul — 454 miles (730 km) north
Istanbul might be at the other end of the country, but with direct flights taking just over an hour, it’s possible to take in the highlights on a day trip. With just one day to explore, fill up your sightseeing tour with must-see attractions such as Topkapı Palace, the Blue Mosque, and the Egyptian (Spice) Bazaar; a walking tour of the Sultanahmet old town; or a cruise along the Bosphorus.
