Worth paying the entrance fee - you don't see all of it from the roadside... partly rebuilt, but four hours went sooooo quickly!

This building gives you a feel for what life must have been like for the Romans and is a good example of Roman's building skills and architecture.

The amphitheatre was very quiet when we visited one early afternoon which was great for us. Plenty of time to sit and admire the view in the hot Turkish sunshine. 15 TL entry fee and a plaque on the wall telling you about the site but apart from that, you're left to wander. You can walk down to the bottom... More

Ok so me and my wife decided to go to the amphitheater as we were staying not too far from this. To be honest it was nice to see however for the price I think perhaps it was a little steep as we spent no longer than an hour if that just wandering around.. You could probably spend 10 mins... More

However there is a lovely view and the building itself is amazing. We were certainly pleased to have visited the place. Quite a few people seemed to decide that the price... More

Well preserved ruins which give a good impression of what it would have been like to visit to view games etc. Not a lot of information on the site and would benefit from more descriptive boards. The ground area was roped off so you can only wander round the seating area and upper terrace. The ruins in the immediate vicinity... More

It's very interesting to visit these kind of places since it has a great history behind it. This place was nice to see but it wasn't really more than that for me. We visited just before noon and it was verty hot so I would recommend to visit when the temperature is lower or if you can find a cloudy... More

Side has lots of ancient Roman ruins and Side Ancient Theatre is one of them which is well preserved. It is 20 walking minutes from Apollon Temple, and 5 walking minutes from Side Museum.
