Side must be an archaeologists dream. This is just one fine example of a town steeped in history. Definitely not to be missed and savoured.

It's a pile of stones, in the shape of an amphitheater but that's it. Great to visit but highly overpriced in comparison to the Side Museum nearby. Climb to the top, stagger to the bottom. Very few signs. No guides. Plenty of barriers mean you can't get to the theatre floor or stage. Not planning a second visit.

I loved this old Greek theatre. I had never seen one before, and It was so amazing to be able to walk around, investigate for your self, and only us and 5 other people inside while we were there.

Pay attention for a ticket you can pay just with local currency, but there is exchange place not far...

İt's unbelievable that people visit & stay in 'Side' but never see this stunng site. İf you are going to this area it is a must!! Located at the entrance to the old city the amphitheatre greets you & the impression it leaves with you will stay forever.
