The Temple of Apollo has always been one of the things most photographed by visitors to Side. It is wonderful to think just how long this part of it has survived. Imagine our disappointment when we visited this year and found it is now inside a fenced area and a charge is being made to get near to it. Understandably,... More

Great walk at the marina with an impresive glimpse at the history. I photo must-do in Side :) Start there and walk to the ruins or make it as your final stop and stay for a dinner at the marina.

Last summer our National Geographic Sea Cloud sailing adventure in Turkey and Aegean Sea stopped at this remarkable temple. What a place. Not to be missed.

Stunning against the blue sky. Amazing that you can just walk up to it and touch history. Sad that pieces of marble just lie on the ground around it.

You have to this temple if you are in Side. Very beautiful and romantic! It is right next to the ocean and a connection between Antique Side and New Side. Unfortunately, they have put up fences for the museum. I have no problem give them a fee but the fence destroyed the feeling a bit.

Antik Side is more than the Temple of Apollo, which sits in its prime location at the end of the city peninsula.

The light is stunning at these times. It's only a short walk from the rest of the ruins and close to restaurants.
