Top Package Tours in Side

The ancient Side is primarily an impressive wealth coming from piracy and slave trade, evidenced by its magnificent buildings. We can admire their remains until today. Here, there is one of the largest theaters in Anatolia for 15 thousand spectators, a huge agora with innumerable columns, small but full ow works of art museum of antiquity, built on the site of Roman baths, a Byzantine basilica. Undoubtedly, the biggest attraction of the city is the Temple of Athena and Apollo from the 2nd century A.D., located right on the seafront, which is a magical place after dark. Side is a cosy spot where you can discover your favourite cafe, tavern, take walks along the winding narrow streets, and in the evening head over to a disco and dance till the morning light. Besides this obvious beauty, there is a wide sandy beach and excellent hotels, where you can sunbathe by the pools for hours on end while having delicious drinks and savour the lack of turmoil, as well as an escape from everyday life.

You’ll find the quiet beach village of Side on the Turkish Mediterranean, an hour or so from Antalya. Expect a flawless mix of old and new in this Roman-inspired resort, with its untouched old town and glamorous harbourside; a blend of impressive ancient sights (like the amphitheatre) and chic waterfront restaurants await you. On both sides of the maze of winding streets are two sandy beaches, which are perfect for relaxing in the sunshine or tackling some high-octane water sports. Holidays to Side are ideal if you want a laid-back break with friends or a loved one, and thanks to those soft, sandy beaches, they’re perfect for family breaks too.
