It is uncertain when the site of the current city was first inhabited. Attalos II, king of Pergamon, was believed to have founded the city around 150 BC, naming it Attalia and selecting it as a naval base for his powerful fleet. Christianity started to spread in the region after 2nd century. Antalya was visited by Paul of Tarsus, as recorded in the Acts of the Apostles: "From Perga, Paul and Barnabas went down to Attalia and sailed from there to Antioch after preaching in Pisidia and Pamphylia". Antalya was a major city in the Byzantine Empire. It was the capital of the Byzantine Theme of Carabisiani. The city, along with the surrounding region, was conquered by the Seljuk Turks in the early 13th century.

Officially MEGISTE, easternmost of the Dodecanese group of islands in the Aegean Sea, belonging to Greece, just off the southwestern coast of Turkey. Kastellórizon has an area of 3 square miles (7.3 square km). Its present name is a corruption of Château-Roux (Red Castle), given it by the medieval Knights of Rhodes and inspired by its red rocks. Some grapes and olives are grown on the island, but sponge fishing is the chief economic activity. The coastline is precipitous and accessible only on the east side, site of the one village, Kastellórizon. The island was occupied successively by the Knights of St. John, the Sultan of Egypt, and the King of Naples. The Turks occupied it from 1512 except for brief intervals until 1915. It was the only Dodecanese island not ceded to Turkey in 1918, but it was captured by the French during World War I and given to Italy under the treaties of Sèvres and Lausanne (1923). Since 1920 it has shared the fortunes of the Dodecanese.

The bay of Marmaris, in the center of the sailing paradise between Bodrum and Fethiye Bay, suits very well for starting a sailing cruise to the east or the west.

Historically, Rhodes was famous worldwide for the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The medieval Old Town of the City of Rhodes has been declared a World Heritage Site. Today, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. In 1309, the Byzantine era came to an end when the island was occupied by forces of the Knights Hospitaller. Under the rule of the newly named "Knights of Rhodes", the city was rebuilt into a model of the European medieval ideal. Many of the city's famous monuments, including the Palace of the Grand Master, were built during this period.
The strong walls which the Knights had built withstood the attacks of the Sultan of Egypt in 1444, and of Mehmed II in 1480. Ultimately, however, Rhodes fell to the large army of Suleiman the Magnificent in December 1522, long after the rest of the Byzantine empire had been lost.
