Istanbul - antalya

by iakofost

Hello to everybody.

I'd like to travel to antalya for the solar eclipse in March.

Are there any excursions from istanbul?

Or is there any train or bus connection between the 2 cities?

Thank you in advance.

There is no train connection between 2 cities. You can take the night bus to Antalya from Istanbul. I advice you to travel with Varan, Ulusoy or Kamil Koc bus lines. Kamil Koc is cheaper then the other two. In the morning you will be in Antalya.

-Imho, the best way is to take a flight. It takes only 50 mins-1 hour and it is not very expensive. Of course, you may need to rent a car or take a shuttle to go to the city center.
-The other option is to take a bus. It takes 10-12 hours. If you are used to long bus trips, you may also consider it. However, if you travel with luxury coaches like Varan's or Ulusoy's, as mentioned above, the price you will pay will only vary a little than what you would pay for the flight.
-I think there is no railway connection between these two cities. The trains are not very comfortable, anyways.

Have a nice trip...

Hi,
When I was a student at the university in Istanbul, my parents were living in Antalya. Therefore, I am so much used to travel between the two cities. I recommend you to take a flight to Antalya from Istanbul rather than using the bus (by the way, there is no train from Istanbul to Antalya. But there is a train from Istanbul to Isparta. In Isparta you have to take a bus to reach Antalya.)The planes are cheaper and of course more comfortable than 11-12 hours of bus trip. It takes around 1 hour. Check Fly Air (http://www.flyair.com.tr/ )or Pegasus (http://www.flypgs.com/ ) for cheap flights between Istanbul and Antalya.
Have a nice holiday.

Travel Tips for Antalya

A Short History of Termessos

by budapest8

Termessos (also known as Termessus) was inhabited by the Pisidians, an indigenous Anatolian nation of noted ferocity. The city first appears in history during the conquests of Alexander the Great. Alexander swept through the region but after winning a skirmish in the narrow mountain passes near the city, declined to storm it. (Guidebooks consistently portray Alexander as unable to take the city, but in fact he was merely disinclined to try.) After Alexander's death the city saw a famous clash during the wars of Alexander's "Successors." One of Alexander's generals, Alcetas, found himself trapped in the city by another of Alexander's generals, Antigonus the "One-Eyed." Beloved by the city's young people, Alcetas was betrayed by its "senior citizens" and comitted suicide rather than fall into Antigonus' hands. Mutilated and left unburied by Antigonus, Alceta's body was retrieved by the younger generation and given a hero's burial. The extant "lion sarcophagus" has convincingly been identified as his final resting place?among the only surviving graves of Alexander's friends and companions.

Ancient Roman outdoor Theatre

by deannatravel

This theatre was built in the 2nd century and is one of the best preserved and is still used for performances. At it's peak the structure held 15,000 people. It is a wonderful place to visit for those who appreciate these types of structures and their place in history. This is a meanful site to christains as this is the first place Paul and Barnabus visited when they began their missioary journeys. If you are interested in this type of Christian tour you can contact us at our website.

Walking the streets.

by nigelw6443

This was an interesting looking shop!

The window was full of colourful of different types of cooking oil. I didn't go in but I assume it was a general store, as they also were selling large economy bags of washing powder, as seen in the picture.

ritamitsouko's new Antalya Page

by ritamitsouko

Here we go! I´m new at VT and so I don't know exactly what to do or write...But I can say something about Antalya, which is one of my favourite places so far. We are a family with three children and because my husband's origin is Turkey, we regularly visit this country. My husband's home is the Black-Sea-Coast in the North of Turkey, which is also very nice to visit! But we love Antalya because of the climate and so we bought an appartment there (with three children you can't afford any hotel longer than two weeks, but we usually stay for four weeks). Our next tickets are bought, in July we are going to Antalya again. I´m looking forward to this!
