Since 1996, AKMED has been engaging in various activities related to archaeology, history, art history, ancient languages, architectural history, and related scientific fields in the historic Kaleiçi district of Antalya. Now, AKMED is bringing together archaeology enthusiasts with the privilege of AKMED TOURS, allowing them to explore ancient cities, archaeological sites, and museums in the Mediterranean region. Participants will have the opportunity to join guided tours led by expert scholars in the field. Please don’t delay in applying as the slots are limited!

Would you like to hear the latest information about ongoing archaeological research in the ancient city of Phaselis directly from the excavation director, Prof. Dr. Murat Arslan?

Furthermore, after lunch on the same day, we will visit the ancient city of Olympos and explore it with the narration of the excavation director, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Gökçen Kurtuluş Öztaşkın.
