The weather at this time of year is unpredictable. The days can be pleasantly warm and sunny but maybe a shower of rain. Check out www.wunderground.com where you can look at your chosen time of year historically. I'd suggest layers of clothes but definitely a warm jacket for evenings.

It's easy enough to get a taxi from the airport to the hotel. Expect to pay around 50-60 lira. There are always plenty of taxis waiting at arrivals.

2. Re: traveling fron antalya airport to Ramada Resort

here is the weather reports for Feb 2013

accuweather.com/en/…

it could rain and yes you should be some jackets and some warmer clothes..daytime temps can be nice but it will cool off at night

If this is your hotel dont bother with a car

http://goo.gl/maps/2uz1b

just walk to the old city center to visit the sites..Kaleiçi, has narrow, winding streets enclosed in ancient city walls, which now protect the peaceful quarter from the noise of the concrete metropolis of a million people. The northern part (Selçuk and Tuzcular sections) of Kaleiçi is mostly touristy shops and restaurants lining the narrow mazelike streets. The Kilinçarslan section is a little more quiet and still charming. Although there are other entrances, it is best to enter and exit the old quarter from charming Hadrianus Gate, built by the Roman emperor Hadrianus as the entrance arch to the city. Hadrian Gate will lead you to Kilinçarslan district.

Fluted Minaret Yivli Minare - In this area, you can see the famous 125 feet tall fluted minaret and the mosque. Nearby is an old market building with an interesting entrance, and a ruined gate or two.

Clock Tower area Saat Kulesi - Ottoman-era clock tower and 18th century Paşa Camii mosque.

Fortified Roman port Yat Limanı - A beautiful harbour surrounded by town walls built during the Roman Era. Nearby is the İskele Camii mosque.

Broken Mınaret Mosque Kesik Minare - beautiful ruins of an old Roman temple, which eventually was converted into a Christian church and finally a mosque.

Hıdırlık Tower Hıdırlık Kulesi - a tower on the edge of the town walls with scenic views of the marina and the harbour.

Atatürk's Home Atatürk Evi (just outside the Kilinçarslan district, walk to Karaalioglu Park along Atatürk Cd.) - house where the first president of Turkey stayed at during his visits in Antalya.

the major attractions in the city are easily accessed by foot or tram..however for trips to perge, side and aspendos or the waterfalls you are better off to join a group tour as public transport is more limiting..more so to the historical sites of Perge and Aspendos..but you can get buses to Side..

Most tours so all those three places in one day and are not that expensive..however book locally and you will find lots of travel acencies in the old city ( kaleiçi ) area

Historic sites in the city center

The Atatürk Monument at Cumhuriyet Meydanı (Republic Square.)

Kaleiçi: the historical center of the city.

Ancient monuments include the City Walls, Hıdırlık Tower, Hadrian's Gate (also known as Triple Gate), and the Clock Tower.

Hadrian's Gate: constructed in the 2nd century by the Romans in honor of the Emperor Hadrian.

İskele Mosque: A 19th century Mosque near the Marina.

Karatay Medrese: A Medrese (Islamic theological seminary) built in 1250 by Emir Celaleddin Karatay.

Kesik Minare (Broken Minaret) Mosque: Once a Roman temple then converted to a Byzantine Panaglia church and finally into a mosque.

Tekeli Mehmet Paşa Mosque: A 18th century Mosque built in honor of Tekeli Mehmet Paşa.

Yat Limanı: the harbour dating to Roman era.

Yivli Minare (Fluted Minaret) Mosque: Built by the Seljuks and decorated with dark blue and turquoise tiles, this minaret eventually became the symbol of the city.

[edit]Museums

Antalya Museum: Prize winning archaeology museum.[citation needed]

Kaleiçi Museum:[15] Opened in 2007 by the Mediterranean Civilizations Research Center (Akdeniz Medeniyetleri Araştırma Merkezi)[16]

Atatürk's House Museum

Antalya Toy Museum. The Antalya Metropolitan Municipality opened the exhibition facility in 2011.[17]

Suna & İnan Kıraç Kaleiçi Museum : A ethnographic museum run by the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation.

In the city of antalya there are 2 main beaches..Konyaalti beach and Lara beach...plus there is a very small beach inthe city center call mermerli beach.

but for one of the best uncrowded beaches in the area go to Cirali ( Olympos )..If you are looking for a small resort you could look at Cirali as a quiet alternative....stunning beach, lush forests..an idyllic, concrete-free paradise, and sparkling clear seas. The Cirali Beach is also a rare opportunity to visit one of the Med’s few remaining nesting sites for loggerhead turtles.

at the airport just take a taxi to get to your hotel..average cost might be around 50 liras..

for 3 days in Antalya I would not bother with a rental car and driving in antalya can be very stressful with lots of traffic..just use the local buses to get around..there is enough to do..or if you want to take some tours there are plenty of tour operators ( travel agents ) available in the old city center..and they offer daily tours to various places with the prices usually listed on a board

From the airport you will see signposts that say Lara Kundu and it's a fairly straightforward road to the hotels.
