Antalya is a province of festivals.The three most important being the Aspendos Opera and Ballet Festival and the new highly successful jazz festival which takes place each year in June.
The Golden Orange short Film Festival and International Film Festival is held throughout October.
Aspendos is unique in Turkey,combining as it does a feast of music with the natural beauty of the immediate sorroundings and man-made magnificence of the Aspendos Theatre.This best preserved Roman amphitheatre in Turkey was used in the 13th century as a Seljuk palace.
Organised by Turkish State Opera and Ballet,this festival is now in its 7-8 years and ttracts large numbers of Turks and holidaymakers from all over the world.
I had been 2 times there for some concerts- I listened to JOSE CARRERAS AND MONTSERRAT CABELLE..lucky me:-)

Baklava is one of the oldest known Turkish desserts. No meal would be complete without baklava for dessert. It is made of baklava - flaky layers of whisper-thin pastry bursting with pistachios, touched with golden butter, gently enveloped in a honey syrup. No holiday, wedding or dinner party could be considered without it.

When walking down the street you may be approached by shop owners offering you items and inviting you in to their shops.
If you want to say no, don't say 'no' or 'hayir' (Turkish). The Turkish make a clicking noise with their tongue to say 'no' in this situation.
Try this and they will probably leave you alone.

Locals tend to invite visitors or just strangers from the street for a cup of tea or coffee. Been told that it's not polite to refuse. It was quite a challange to drink 20 (and after 20 I lost count) cups of tea in 2 hours. Though apple tea tastes really good.

Back in the good old days people would go to the theatre in stadiums like this one. This particular theatre was somewhere close to Perge, but I don't know the exact location. It is very well preserved considering the maintenance contract ran out on it some centuries ago. ;-)
