Owner description: The best-known attraction among the ruins of Aspendos is the great theater, an amazingly well preserved vestige of Roman architecture that may be as impressive as Rome's own Colosseum.

Dates back from the Roman times. Interesting & fascinating history to hear and a pleasant place to visit.

We visited this amphitheatre as part of an organised tour of Turkey. It is a very well preserved theatre and is quite spectacular. There are a couple of men dressed as gladiators who will pose for you - pick up the photos as you leave - very reasonable price, so we splurged (10TL for one, or 15TL for two.) It is worthwhile walking all over the theatre, to see the various parts. There are also a few other sites, signposted, near the theatre. A new theatre has been built nearby, to accommodate all the productions that apparently were previously held in this amphitheatre.

This was an organised visit, as part of a tour of Turkey, of a site that we really wanted to see. It is one of the most complete amphitheatres in existent and retains a marvellous atmosphere. But it stands on its own, without the town that it originally served, so the visit was not very long. In the venue were a paid of "Roman" gladiators that would pose for photos, for a fee (I guess).

The budget way is for those who have the time and like to travel by local buses. We walked from Sabah Pansiyon to the Ismepasa tram stop and took the tram to Otoga stop and walked to the minibus terminal (2 lira). Took the minibus to Serik - 1hour and 30 mins and 7 lira. The minibus stop at the water fountain in Serik, Waited 4 mins and took bus no 10 to Aspendos - about 30 mins and 2 lira. Spent 3 hours seeing the theater and climbed up the hills to see the ruins of the basilica, stadium, temple, council house, fountain and the waterway, Waited 30 mins for the No 10 bus to Serik and then by minibus to bus station, Antalya. Total 33 lira including 15 lira entry fee and 8 hours.
