It's an impressive building at the entrance of the city. You may get transport the the ancient city center but I recommend you to just walk.

As with all historical sites, make sure you at least Google some quick historical facts and then visit with an open mind and a vivid imagination. Otherwise you'll just see a pile of rocks and a partially restored walls .

must go there by yourself (by bus or car) and dive into ancient times when this was a melting pot of cultures. Enough place to go out of theway of the mass of people in the buses.

This is one of the nearest ancient city parts to the parking and public transport area but, along with the Apollo temple and the amphitheatre, one of the most stunning. Great to think how it may have worked when fully functioning but some noticeboards also give guidance. A must-see for any visitor to Side.

The nymphaeum is beautiful at night and offers the best photo opportunities. No access is allowed near to the temple but will save it from wear

Side is essentially a pedestrian town and our taxi dropped us off at the bus terminal/car park so you walk down past this impressive piece of architecture.

A beautiful historical site with great photo opportunities. Just be wary of the fake tour guides who will share information then charge you for it.

The Side peninsula is covered in ruins of the old town. If you arrive by bus, the Nymphaeum will be your first introduction to the ancient site. Although mostly ruined,much of the original construction remains and the carving on the marble blocks and pillars is still clearly visible.
