We had a very early breakfast (and another photo shot of the Blue Mosque) and then a flight to Antalya on the southwest coast of the Mediterranean. First we went to the notable Antalya Archeology Museum.
         
We had a delightful lunch overlooking the Eurymedon River with views of ruins in the distance.
         
         
Next we went to the ancient city of Aspendos with its wonderfully preserved Roman theatre. One could almost sense the excitement of a day of wild animal fights or other events.
         
         
Then it was on to Perge with its baths, agora, long streets and large gates. In the late afternoon we reached our lovely hotel in the "old town" section of Antalya with its narrow winding streets and views of the harbor.
