I love Side it's an amazing place to holiday with The Temple of Apollo right in the centre of everything.

An amazing sight. Best time to visit is sunset. At night the temple is floodlit and makes for a very romantic stroll.

What a beautiful spot! Lovely if you can get a photo without anyone else in it! The detail on the carvings is so clear.

If you want to get romantic and beautiful photos, you have to go there during sunset. Unfortunately the nearby ruins weren't open for public during our holiday. Must to see in SIde!

This is one of the best parts of historical ruins in Side area.Just walk down the main road to the old Side center and you will going to reach at the end of the road on yr left hand side,next to small pier.Magnificient view with special lighting in the night.Very much worth to see it.

Once upon a time built up as a temple but now besides being historlical also romantic place to visit by the seaside. I think Roma Empirament would never imagine that... More

You run the gauntlet of restaurants to get to it from both sides but once there the view & photograph opportunities are worth it.
