Small entrance fee but well worth it.

The amphitheater is very imposing once you're inside. It is very well preserved and you can walk through all of it apart from the upper level. If you stand at the bottom, you can... read more

The ruins were ok but seen far far better at Ephesus and Athens. The area was very badly maintained and poor information available.

Only part of the amphitheatre is left and there are much better examples elsewhere. No need to pay the entrance fee - you can walk around it and see from the other side. The advantage of doing that is there are quite a few ruins nearby to see too.

The amphitheater is very imposing once you're inside. It is very well preserved and you can walk through all of it apart from the upper level. If you stand at the bottom, you can see how high and steep the whole thing is. Very interesting to see something so sold but still so solid. Also, during our stay they hosted... More

The Amphitheater is a great place to walk round, at the edge of a cliff the views over the bay are stunning - take the bus and you'll see more of the city than in a Taxi and it will save you around 40 euros

Truly astounding - but we couldn't get in - they only accept Turkish Lire and we didn't have any (we'd read that euros are accepted everywhere - but not here) We'd have loved to have gone round and seen it up close and it wasn't expensive 18 Turkish Lire (I think c.£4)

Out of this world, A must see amphitheatre and surrounding area. Very near to Apollo Temple also. There are restaurants and shops in the same area.

It's an amazing feeling walking out under the archway to view out to the horizon, you feel as though you are on the edge of the world, being transported back in time. The ruins around the amphitheater are worth an explore also, you are free to roam and feel like you are discovering it for the first time.

We enjoyed this impressive site-the engineering and size are incredible. It helps to have a guide who can explain the history and stimulate imagination of what it might have been.
