FROM YOUR LOCATION TEAM
The cruise port of Alanya sits in a
picturesque harbor on the Turkish
Riviera, overlooked by Alanya’s
spectacular medieval castle, which sits
atop a rocky peninsula. First settled in
the Paleolithic Age, about 20,000 years
ago, this charming city, according to
legend, was a gift from Marc Anthony to
Cleopatra. This historic and thriving
resort is an exciting cruise destination,
rich in beauty and history, as well as the
gateway to a landscape of long sandy
beaches, idyllic coves, canyons, rivers and
caves. The city boasts a rich culture,
fascinating archaeology and warm
hospitality. The centerpiece of the port is
the Alanya Castle. Built in the 13th
century and remains one of the best
preserved medieval castles in Anatolia.
With almost 4 miles of castle walls, it acts
as an open-air museum. The walls begin
at the Red Tower, the symbol of the city,
built to protect the marina. Today,
visitors can find the Alanya museum
inside of this tower housing artifacts
from the area. Outside the city itself,
there are many fascinating historical
landmarks in the Antalya province.
Aspendos was once a major GrecoRoman port city, and home to one of the
best preserved Roman theaters in the
Mediterranean. Side is another classical
site and home to many interesting ruins,
including a gladiator arena dating back
to the 2nd century A.D.
