It’s Tuesday and the weather today is fabulous. We had a light day today. Toured the
hotel Marmara Antalya. Kitschy decor. Lobby and entrance is on the 7th floor, restaurant is buffet, library, internet cafe, wine bar & lounge all in one. There are two swings, a graffiti wall, sofas and of course dining tables. The restaurant has an outdoor eating area and is the walkway to the deluxe rooms in the Revolving Loft, where we are staying. It’s a cylindrical structure that rotates one full turn every 4 hours or so and your view is constantly changing. The surroundings are beautiful with the sea below and the mountains above. To go to the swimming area you take the elevator to zero and walk through a tunnel, there’s a swimming area off the cliffs and while we were touring a sea turtle came to visit. This is a great seaside property.
Antalya is another historic sight. We visited some of the ruins including the Perge Southern Bath House. Boy the Turks loved their Turkish Baths. Many remains date back to the 2nd and 3rd centuries BC, the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman periods.
I’m loving Antayla, with it’s warm Mediterranean Seas, mountian background, hisctoric sights, modern hotels and the wonderful food.
