Old Bazaars

Antalya's traditional market area (çarsi) is conveniently located just inland from Kalekapisi along Kazim Özalp Caddesi (formerly—and still sometimes — called Sarampol Caddesi).

Look for the statue of Attalus, the king of Pergamum for whom Antalya (Attaleia) was named. The statue is just across the street, inland, from the stone tower of Kalekapisi.

Behind Attalus is Kazim Özalp Caddesi, a pedestrians-only street pleasant for a stroll and some window-shopping.

In the first block from Kalekapisi are several currency exchange offices. If you need to change money shop around for the best rates — they can vary greatly.

As you walk from Kalekapisi in the first block of Kazim Özalp Caddesi, more or less to the right (east) of the Attalus statue, is a warren of tiny lanes close-packed with little shops, mostly selling jewelry and souvenirs. This was Antalya's central bazaar for many years—the city's prime market for food and and for everything else as well.

Other good shopping and strolling streets include the boulevard that passes Hadrian's Gate, and the narrow streets of Kaleiçi.
