You will depart from the pier for a visit to Antalya's renowned Archaeological Museum, where an amazing variety of impressive collections are on display, including pottery, coins, mosaics, sculptures, costumes, sarcophagi and numerous artifacts found in nearby caves.
A furnished nomad's tent, a carpet loom and several rooms from a typical Ottoman household provide fascinating glimpses into the local lifestyles. The Hall of Emperors and Classical Art displays statues of the Greek gods, the Emperors Hadrian and Septius Serverus and their empresses. There is also a stunning mosaic collection from Xanthos depicting the infant Achilles being dangled by his mother into River Styx. Other exhibits include the extraordinary finds from the Karain Caves, which date back to the Stone Age.
En route back to the pier enjoy a brief overview of the picturesque town center of Antalya, passing Hadrian's Gate, the Fluted Minaret and some Seljuk remains. Walk in the narrow streets of the Old Town, which is full of traditional Ottoman Houses.
Enjoy some free time to explore on your own before returning to the ship.
