A modest coastal town for most of its long history, Alanya became a cosmopolitan tourist destination in the 1990s, drawing big crowds with its nightlife and long stretch of sandy beaches.
Start off your visit on the 26th (Sat): explore the historical opulence of Alanya Kalesi, then steep yourself in history at Hamaxia, and then kick back and relax at Kleopatra Beach. On the 27th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: delve into the distant past at Ancient Theater, admire the landmark architecture of Temple of Apollo, and then admire the local landmark of Monumental Fountain (Nymphaeum).
