It was worth the trip to Side, seeing this ancient Ruins of the Apollo Temple. Entrance is free and there are Restaurants and Cafe's nearby for refreshment. It's a lovely view of the Sea from the Ruins.

Great view to the Mediterranean sea. A working project still being worked on, even more so during the low season. About a 7 minute walk towards the sea from the main road in Side. Does not take very long to see and walk around the temple. Very artistic pictures can be taken from here.

Very pretty ruins and lovely seeing the sea and snow capped mountains in the background. There are lots of boards around which explains what you are looking at.

Something you should go see, but make it part of another trip to the city. The view is gorgeous and free, and you can grab some pizza and drinks nearby, all with a breathtaking view.

I'm really into history and this place is beautiful. I could almost picture the life as it was way back then and it gave me goose bumps. I could do with some tidying up though but then, if stupid people didn't drop litter, this wouldn't be necessary. You can walk through the "rooms" and it's awesome.

For this place you dont have to pay to see. Last time was night time here was looking like moe romantic. But also visiting in the day time is good to be able to see the details and more from the enviroment with the see view.

A very beautiful place. A lot of history in the area that you really can feel in the air. Here you can take a lot of beautiful pictures especially in the sunset. Great view

To truly appreciate the beauty of the Temple of Apollo I suggest you visit at sunset as it is at it's most spectacular then with the sun setting behind it and the sound of the waves in your ears,There are several small bars where you can enjoy tea,(or reiki) as you soak up the view and atmosphere.....
