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

As you walk around the corner from the harbour the Temple is straight in front of you and if you have never been here before it is a stunning sight. Well worth the visit to Side to see this.

This is a lovely site to visit especially at night......very romantic!!!! There is however a lot of further excavation going on in this area so you do have to mind your footings when walking through but never the less still a beautiful historical place.

Worth going to see. Caught the bus from hotel and back. Lots of shops, haggle with prices, they love it. Remember to take your free bottle of water from hotel as they charge 1 euro a bottle.

This was a nice visitor attraction, well worth a visit as it conjures up images of what it must have been like in ancient times. It's a place to sit back, relax and think of things you would like to do in Turkey.
