Antalya (formerly known as Adalia or Attalia, from Pamphylian Greek) is a city on the Mediterranean coast of southwestern Turkey, and the capital city of Antalya Province. Situated on coastal cliffs, Antalya is surrounded by mountains. Development and investment, began in the 1970s, have transformed the city into a vacation destination. Features including nature, history, and central location on the Turkish riviera have made Antalya one of the mostly visited tourist spot on the Mediterranean coast.
