We had not been to Side for many years, but came back to see the archaeological sights again - there won´ t be a next time for us. Side has become a touristy Moloch, and the ancient places seem to have been neglected. The amphitheater is still an imposing monument which you ought to see if you are in Side.... More

As with any tourist attraction, tradesmen are in your face, however, the Turkesh respect if you say NO, just be honest otherwise they will never leave you alone.

If you arrive by Dolmus in Manavgat, on your walk to the centre, you'll pass the Amphitheater, It's oke to visit if you're there anyway, but I wouldn't especially visit Manavgat for it.

All ruins are wery well preserved. The paths among the ruins can be better. It is necessary to have comfortable shoes.

Wow. Despite every shop selling fake goods, this is a fabulous place to go. Sea side restaurant scene is good but expensive.

It is amazing to see this amphitheatre and the condition of the entire seating area. It also gives panoramic views from the top of the amphitheatre, of the surrounding countryside and the sea.

An impressive theatre with a gorgeous view over ancient city. It was the biggest auditorium in Anatolia with 15.000 seats. Entrance fee is 15 TL (app.€5)
