Lovely setting to take photographs. Beware of pushy restaurants along the way well worthy reading reviews to avoid disappointment.

We stayed at the Barut Hemera Hotel and the Roman ruins were a 45 minute walk away. Located in the town of Side they were easy to see. Think there is a section/ museum that you can pay to enter, we just visited the public areas. Great way to spend an afternoon, camel rides are available. The town of Side... More

It's amazing this was built a couple of thousand years ago and is still around. To be able to touch the stones that someone sweated over carving so long ago is a really strange and eerie when you stop and think. Definitely a must see if in the area.

Unlike Stonehenge, the Turks are quite happy for you to touch and inspect the pillars. I believe the temple is being reconstructed at the moment so not complete but worth a visit.l

Being an archaeologist, I tend to have a disliking to ruins being re-built, but have to say, in this instance, I was mesmerised but this. The sheer size and location, you can only imagine what it must have looked like when it was newly constructed. Well worth dealing with the market hagglers to get to it.

If you're in Side, you have to go there at sunset and take some pictures! Really lovely place, close to the city centre, so it won't take a lot of time either!

What a sight. Stunning architecture, wonderfully stood over time, amazing. Simply a must see if your in Side. With the sea right near by, can always have a dip to cool off after. Definitely returning to Side to see this again.

If you arrive in Side near the amphitheatre then it is well worth strolling through the narrow streets of shops to reach the Temple of Apollo perched right beside the Mediterranean. It is stunning to look at. Whilst there are some information boards they only give limited information so I would recommend taking a guide book or at least reading... More
