Great place to visit, well preserved amphitheatre but everyone is out to take your cash. First the car park charge then the kind Turkish gentleman who offers directions to the entrance and holds his hand out for a tip and he just happens to have a "genuine" roman coin for sale. Next the costumed roman gladiators who willingly pose for... More

This site is easily accessed and is free. The site is under restoration and sprawls right up,to the beach and bizarre.

definitely worth the 20 liras entry fee if you are into stuff like this . A short walk from the tourist centre of Side. You can see it partly from the outside (the north side ). Still recommend going inside

It's incredible that there is so much of this ancient structure left standing. You can walk down the steps/seats and see what it would have been like to experience a "show" there. You also get great views of the surrounding area.

A spectacular amphitheater. Costs you 20 liras and there's not much to see. I was there for 15 minutes. Allthough it's a spectacular sight. If you don't want to pay for it you see enough of it from the outside.

Stunning ruins of what would have been a magnificent place in its original state, I can see why they say Anthony & Cleopatra loved Side. Little shade & very hot so make sure you are prepared & it will be worth it.
