Antalya is a world apart with its long summers, mild winters, unpolluted waters and sandy beaches. The snow remains on the top of Toros and Bay mountains during hot seasons and you may swim in the warm waters of Mediterranean at the same day. It's the pearl of Mediterranean. Combining history and culture it deserves the title of "capital of Turkish tourism".
