Side is one of the best-known classical sites in Turkey. It was an ancient harbor whose name meant pomegranate. Today a pretty resort town, its ancient ruins, two sandy beaches, numerous shops and extensive tourist accommodation attract hundreds of visitors. The magnificent theater of the ancient city, built on colonnaded arches, is the largest in the whole area. Other monuments include the Agora, the Temple of Apollo, which is situated near the sea, a fountain and Necropolis. The extensive Roman baths, now a museum, houses one of Turkey's finest archaeological collections.
After some free time on your own in Side, you will return to Antalya.

This is a must see if you are visiting Antalya! Our tour guide was very informative. Everything went off without a hitch. You will need to call and confirm your reservation 24hours before your tour. The bus was comfortable and airconditioned. We stopped at Perge first, then Side to see Temple of Apollo and Athena, then finished off the tour at Duden Waterfalls. We had an amazing day!

The weather was terrible, but the sites are so fascinating and our guide so enthusiastic and well prepared that we didn't mind. Perge is a must for anyone interested in ancient history.
