- Family Travel
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring a good pair of walking shoes. The tours are in ancient sites and one of the people on one tour was actually trying it in heels.

Climate in Antalya
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: When I was in Antalya in August, it was three days about 46°C (115°F) !
So if you don't like heat you should visit Antalya in fall and spring only.
In the summer you don't need an umbrella or warm clothes. Just sunglasses and T-Shirts.
Be aware of the very high UV-radiation. Don't miss sunscreen and don't stay too long in the sunshine!

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: if you are visiting in the summer, be sure to have your bathing suits with you and in the early autmn a little warmer clothes.
do not worry, club med worries for blankets during the animations in the evenings!!
Photo Equipment: you should take your cameras with you and take lots of pictures.
just to let you know that a photographer is located in every corner of the village and your photos are taken professionally and sold to you later if you like them.
Miscellaneous: Orange Juice! (Not as a packing list item, of course). They squeeze it on every corner from fresh oranges. A very good idea for a hot summer day. The juice is though as 'hot as the day', 'cause they serve it in the street straight from the squeezer, not from refregirator. The photo is taken in Antalya Old Town.
