It wasn't busy and there was a lot of places for a photo opportunity during sunset. The sun doesn't fully set in the sea as there are hills in the back ground but the view of the sun setting through the arches of the temple is an excellent view.

Went in the evening after a meal, was great to take pictures, really atmospheric and beautiful. Astonishing to think how long it has been there and pleasing to see the restoration coming along.

Lovely to wonder around freely, but I personally feel that there should be some fencing to preserve its quality not let people climb all over it.

The old area of Side is a very large bazar standing in a Roman ruine landscape. If you like bazars it is very interesting, if you do not you will have problems walking around.

What a beautiful site and setting, you can view sunset right from this site. We were there during a full moon so turned and looked the other way as well. Great photo opportunities

We saw it from the sea and it is a wonderful view. Able to walk around some of the ruins. Doesn't take too long to walk round so combine with a walk round the old town.

Amazing pictures to take and its beautiful at night lit up. Went with a child in a wheelchair, ground a bit uneven so a bit difficult to push over some of the surface but still able to. Although couldn't gain access to the theatre area due to the barriers

Not much to add to everyone else's comments. There is little to see apart from this rather impressive and extremely photogenic gateway but it is worth taking a little time to sit on one of the fallen stones and reflect. Even more photo opportunities at night when it is quite spectacular.

Although there are a few reassembled pillars, that and the location by the sea are stunning. Worth a visit
