Day 1- Sample Turkish Fare
A not-to-be-skipped activity in Antalya is the satiating of your taste buds with Turkey’s delectable local delights such as ‘meze,’ which is something like an entrée and includes spicy salsas and dips that are eaten along with crusty baguettes and seafood.

The restaurant Villa Perla offers all of the above along with a good dose of Turkish desserts and drinks to wash all that food down.
