It worth’s going! When you sit at the top row observing amphitheater and other ancient columns and monuments, it feels like time stops. It’s better to visit in the late afternoon, as it might be too hot during the day. Open hours – 10.00-19.00. Entrance fee – 15 TRL.

It may cost 15 Turkish Lira, but it is well worth the money to see such and incredible piece of architecture. When you consider that such a marvel was built without the machinery and technology we have today, it makes you realise how ingenious the ancients were.

We visited the amphitheater and found it to be an amazing attraction. Entry fee is 15 Lira and was worth every cent to get a feel of the arena. Well worth a visit. In fact, Side is lined with beautiful old walls which run along parts of the coast. Seriously, take a peak.

Really impressive amphitheatre. We didn't pay in but you can still see plenty from the outside. It's well worth making a trip if you're staying nearby.
