Ticket was only 15 lira/person. View from the Theater was amazing and there was so much to see. If you go to Side you must go and see the theater!

Very well preserved amphitheater from Roman times. It's quite an experience to watch the view from it. Well worth the entrance fee.

This is just amazing to think that almost 2000 years ago this theater would be full with 15,000 people.
