Having visited many ancient sites over the years, right across world, I have to say this is in fantastic shape. A beauty to the eye and a true culture gem well position for near facilities but worth the effort to get to even if it was miles from anywhere. If based in or around Side then you genuinely can't afford... More

It is a great reminder of our shared history, and is a small version of the Colosseum in Rome. Well worth a visit

You are allowed to sit and imagine you are back two thousand years and wonder how they made this. There are stunning views enjoy the beauty, but respect the place it is being restored but you can still wonder round

As you enter Antik Side (old town) you can’t miss the city walls, colonnaded street and the amphitheatre - it is the iconic photo of Old Side. We visited just as it opened to avoid the hoards of later tourists and the intense heat. It is a lovely amphitheatre with surprisingly large amount intact and the beauty is that you... More

Quite a large theathre in the middle of a rather small tourist village. If the beach gets boring, it is uplifting to learn something an be cultural. Didn't go inside, but took some nice photographs from outside the are.

Very interesting piece of Roman history with a low entrance fee made this one of our best experiences during a week in Side. Very much recommended.

I have just returned from Turkey and the one disappointment we had was the fact that on the day we pitched up to see the ruins of this amphitheatre it was shut. It has been there for around 2000 years and I dare say hundreds of thousands of people, gladiators, slaves and prisoners have passed through its portals. Unfortunately I... More

That was one of the most interesting visits, the whole strukture is amazing, very interesting for his history. A special feeling that worth the effort. We should be earlier in the morning becuase the children like it and wanted more time but 18:00 is closing so think about that as well.
