You can get a great view of all of the grounds without the entrance fee of the museum etc. I have been to ruins that were in better shape in Egypt near the Nile but the grounds here are pretty extensive.

What an amazing sight in such a small town in Turkey. I can only imagine what this place looked like 2000+ years ago, when this amphitheater was likely the center of entertainment for the region. Most of the site is off-limits due to restoration, but you can pay to enter and see parts of the amphitheater if you like. We... More

This is a very nearly complete amphitheatre and you therefore get a great impression of what it was like originally. There are intricate stone carvings in the stage area and you can climb up the tiered stone seating and sit and reflect. It has harder to climb back down as the seating/steps are steep and uneven.

Well worth a visit, restoration work is being carried out. A lot of work is still to be done on this site. You get a good view from the road, it is also open to the public for a fee

You can see Antic side for free, but to get inside of the theater cost around $5 and it worth it! We didn't have a tour, they have a signs you can read some info about this place.
