    Antalya: Tramway

    The city's trams

    Central Antalya has a great tramway running along a single route across the city from the SE, via the old town along Atatürk Cad and out to the Archeological Museum in the west.
    Services ran daily only every 30 minutes, but it's worth the wait for a convienient tram ride from the centre to the museum or to get to the small bus stop opposite the Sheraton Hotel. Only 750,000TL for a single trip.

    Major airport of Antalya

    Antalya's airport

    The airport of Antalya (AYT/LTAI) is a major airport and serves the entire turkish Mediterranean coast (the popular southern parts) and therefore lots of people travel through here.
    I just want to you to be aware of that you will have to wait for about an hour to show your passport, because there are alot of people and slow staff!

    Our kids in the busstation

    Take a taxi from Antalya centre to the Otogar (busstation), too far to walk

    The bus the 365 km in approximately 7 hours

    We didn't know there are almost no stops on the Turkish roads so we didn't bring enough food with us.

    Won't happen a second time

    I paid 12 million TL per person

    Antalya Bus terminal

    Main bus terminal of antalya is one of the nicest and modern ones in Turkey..

    Main Routes are big cities but you can also find minibuses to surrounding cities and towns..

    Taxis At Antalya

    Taxis at antalya

    Taxis in Antalya are known to be the most expensive taxis of the Whole Turkey.. Their rates may be compared with the rates of New York... So if it is not a must, I wond advice to take a taxi, and if you are in need go ahead for a bargain..

    The main possibility to take a taxi is from the airport..The cost to travel to the city center is between 15-30 USD. But you shall ask before you get on a taxi..

    If you are going to travel to the surrounding towns of Antalya, like kemer... Taking a direct taxi to kemer will cost you more, instead you can take a taxi to city center and take another one from the city center.. But dont forget to negotiate the prices..

    Antalya Airport

    Antalya airport

    Just 20 km from the city center Antalya airport Hosts around 2 million passenger each year. The summer traffic is enormous and the new international terminal is on operation to cover the demand..

    The airport has seperate International and Domestic terminals.. The first terminal is the domestic one..

    There is a bank, an ATM machine inside the terminal. Also a Post office and telephone boots.. As the exchange rates at the airport are lower, I would suggest you to change your currencies at the city center..

    Many tour operating companies are arranging a pick up service from the airport but if you happen to be there without a service. You have two alternatives to reach the city center..

    Taxis are operating at the airport and they have a fix price to the city center and also to some other near towns or districts..

    Havas have bus shutlle services to the city center. The buses are operating according to the THY arrival hours... the buses will carry you to the THY terminal office at the city Center..

    Antalya Tramvay

    by navaros Written Sep 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nice way to make a round tour of the city is with the city's tram. A single tram line starts at the Antalya Museum, Antalya Beach Park (at Konyaalti Beach), and the Sheraton Voyager and Falez hotels in the west, and runs eastward along the main boulevard to the city center at Kalekapisi. Then it turns right (south) and passes Hadrian's Gate and Karaalioglu Park before passing near the deluxe Talya Oteli and ending near Lara Plaj (Beach) to the east.
    There are only two trains. They run along a single track, passing at a short length of double track near Kalekapisi.Both trains depart on the hour and half-hour from the termini for a ride of 15 minutes.
    The fare costabout 25¢ :-))

    Dolmus

    Dolmus

    The best way to get around is Dolmus, kind of shared minibus. You can flag it down from anywhere and when you want to get off, just tell the driver.
    Don’t be surprised if it seems to burst at its seams. Dolmus means ‘stuffed’, which is exactly what it is.
    Prices variate a bit but you never have to pay more than € 0.20.

    Jump!!!

    It is kind of hard to picture it from this picture, but this was basically the central post of a spiral staircase at the theatre near Perge. The open area had wooden stairs that spiraled around the central pillar to allow access to the higher levels of seats in the theatre. Alas, I was not able to jump high enough to get to the upper seats this was so I just walked up from the inside like all the other tourists. ;-)

    We took a flight with Pegasus Airlines.
    One of the most famous ways to get around is by 'dolmus'. We hired a car by the 'Varuna' company and one day we took a taxi. Price of the taxi: he drove with us about 60 km and stayed with us all day (stopped wherever we wanted and waited in the car) and we paid 1500 BEF or ca. 40 Euro.

    In Turkey you can travel around by Dolmus. That are little busses that can transport approximately 20 people at the same time. You can stop the Dolmus on the street whenever you need one and if you want to go out just say it to the driver. It is very cheap (± 250.000 TL) and it is a nice way to taste a little of the Turkish atmosphere! If you have to travel a long way then you can go by touringbus. The busses leave at the busstation in the center of Antalya.

    We flew United to Frankfurt and Hapaug Lloyd from Frankfurt to Antalya. Most of the airplanes to Antalya come from Germany.
    From the Sheraton, the tram was terrific. There are also Dolmuses that run everywhere and cost almost nothing. To and from the Airport we found a taxi to be reliable and reasonable (about $16). For sightseeing I recommend a tour. Our two all day tours cost $20 and $30. This included transportation, lunch and the guide. We had to pay the admission fees, but it was a great way to see things.

    The best way to get around Antalya is going by 'Dolmus'.
    Little busses that stop where- and whenever you like,
    go stand along the road , hold your hand up when a dolmus is coming, and it takes you through Antalya
