I remember when it wasn't there so it is coming along nicely. In another twenty years it will be finished,, again.

This is a real Roman treasure but the basilica is now mostly behind a fence. Excellent bar next door facing the harbour

The temple of Apollo in Side is in a stunning location very close to the Mediterranean. It is free to enter and just one of many Greek & Roman sites in town. As you approach from the tourist coach park you will also pass by a roman marketplace, city gateway, amphitheatre and museum.

Loved this area, so much history you are just walking back in time. Lovely place to take pictures during the day and at sunset. On a boat trip we got a lovely view of the Temple.

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
