    What to Expect
    Meet a guide at your centrally-located Alanya hotel, then board a climate-controlled coach for the 58-mile (94-km.) trip to Aspendos. Explore the ruins on your own, which are listed as a tentative UNESCO World Heritage Site, taking in aqueducts, temples, and the spectacular Roman Amphitheater, a landmark built under the rule of Marcus Aurelius.

    The next stop is Kursunlu Waterfalls, where you’ll find the picturesque cascades wrapped in a pine forest. Photograph a historic mill, descend a staircase to the waterfall, and watch for the turtles and trout that can be seen just below the surface of the water. Visit a restaurant for a lunch of salad and fish, chicken, or pide, a kind of Turkish flatbread, then tour the nearby leather and jewelry shop (this is the perfect place to pick up unique souvenirs from the area).

    After lunch, continue to the ancient ruins of Side, a sprawling site with well-preserved walls, an agora, or public square, Roman baths, and more. Take in Side's landmarks, from ancient Roman temples to the nymphaeum spring. Following your time at Side, begin the return trip to Alanya, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

    Waterfalls are lovely but would advise anyone with mobility problems there are a lot of steps that don't have handrails. Aspendos is amazing, but again anyone with mobility issues would not get the full experience
