Antonine Nymphaeum

In the spirit of this month's series : International Romance...here's an interesting idea for a destination wedding/honeymoon: The Antonine Nymphaeum.
Guest: "Where are you having the ceremony?"
Bride: "At the Antonine Nymphaeum... It's in an ancient city on the Mediterannean coast of Turkey."

Sounds original and hopelessly romantic to me. The site has survived for centuries, which bodes well for any union consecrated there, I suppose. But then, the place is a ruin, so maybe it would be a long lasting marriage, but not necessarily a good one!

Anyway, the recently restored fountain is near Antalya and all the wonderful sightseeing possibilities there. And you can always hop on a Blue Cruise...
