      thank you for your comment. Yes, there are two different prices, one for tourist and one for local. You should know, that for Turkish citizens, the difference is subsidised by the state to make sights more attractive also for locals. That’s the reason, why prices differ for locals and Turkish citizens.

      Wish you a lot of fun in Antalya, a wonderful stay in Turkey and a save fight back home.
