This is a Don't Miss

It is free and you get a stunning view of the harbor. Unfortunately the ruins beside the columns are behind a tall chain link fence though one can take pictures through the links.

Not much to see, we had wheelchair and did the full walk round from harbour right round to theatre. Walk took us over hour due to struggles with wheelchair. But very educational for us all. But people still say not much to see? I suppose it's more interesting for us who love a good bit of history.

I was staying in Evrenseki and decided to make the 3.5mile trek along the beach to Side in search of a bit of culture. The temple of Apollo did not disappoint. It was a beautiful sight/site made all the better for the sunshine on my visit. There's signage offering information on the history of the site and the surrounding ruins... More

Stunning and vast and very good for walking and from there you go walk all the back to the royal dragon hotel moat on a bautifull purpose built promenade and then on beaches .

We ended up here by accident after wandering along the sea front. There isn't much more than the columns. Pretty to look at and good for a few Selfies, especially with the sea behind, but not much more to it.

It makes for some great views in the evenings, I highly suggest stopping by if you are already in the area, not really worth a trip on its own, still great!
