Side Center

From the city gate columns runs a boulevard to the old harbour. There you can find ruins of the Temple of Athena and Apollo. There are still some pillars standing.

Especially at sunset it is a beautiful view! Near Side are many important Roman excavations done and the result you can see in the archaeological museum. It is housed in a former Roman bathhouse. To the interior of the building is good to see the agreement between the old baths and traditional Turkish baths. When approaching Side you see directly the Roman amphitheatre. Not in the same good condition as that of Aspendos but no less impressive.

In the 4th century was the back of this theatre part of the city wall. Click here for our rental properties offer.
