We were staying in Alanya but decided to visit Side (30-40 minute taxi journey approx) for the afternoon and night. The area of the ruins is a lovely setting and we had a nice wander round. There are plenty of good shops in the old town as well as restaurants and bars. Overall we had a fantastic day in Side... More

Bit dissapointed to see it was fenced off, but with the camera pointing through the fence you can get some good photos.... worth the walk..

A few have said on here that the ruins have fencing round them, none when we visited. Amazing place and lovely to wander round. Worth going to watch the sunset alone. Near to harbour and the shops of the old town. Many places to eat and drink close by.

if you go out to sea on a trip ,when you come back into Side you can see the temple. you can imagine what an imposing sight it would have been. It is lovely at night especially if their is a full moon

Our guide/driver dropped us of in Side and we went to the ruins and walked around and got a lot of good pics. It was extremely hot- 105 degrees - so good thing we had plenty of water. Not very crowded so easy to wander around.

Loved the history, amazing, magnificent architecture. Hard to imagine parts of the architecture is still there. Really worth seeing!

I think the best time to go is after 18.00, it is too hot between 11.00-18.00 . You can take woderful photos during sunset, the colour of the sky is red and yellow.

Looked good but sadly there is fencing up all around the temple so you can't get all that close to it
