Side, Manavgat, and Aspendos are three attractive places in Turkey’s Antalya region. Side, an old Roman city, is famous for its well-preserved remains and rich history, which include Roman baths, an amphitheatre, and temples.
On a Side Manavgat Aspendos Tour, there are several things you can do:
Visit the Aspendos Theater: The Aspendos Theater is an ancient theater that is considered to be one of the best-preserved theaters in the world. It is still used for performances today.
You will be picked up in the morning from your Side hotel by a spacious, fully air-conditioned bus. You will be accompanied by a knowledgeable tour guide who will provide all the information you want about the points of interest throughout the journey.
There are cafeterias, gift stores, and shaded tea gardens all around the falls. You will be surrounded by lush vegetation, fresh air, and the sound of the river during your journey. The lush park where the Manavgat Waterfall, also known as the Side Waterfall, is situated overflows over the neighbouring coastal terraces.
You’ll also have the chance to eat lunch at Side, a historic peninsula tucked between sand dunes and the Mediterranean Sea. At Side, you may explore the old city ruins, the up-to-date tourist destination, and the Greek deity Apollo’s high-cliff temples.
You’ll take a side trip to see the magnificent historic city of Aspendos. The best-preserved Roman amphitheatre in Turkey is at Aspendos. After passing past the gates, the theatre’s entrance is disguised, but it is straight ahead rather than up the walk to the right. The theatre is incredibly impressive due to both its size and superb condition.
You may ascend the stairs to see it in all its splendour. It most likely had a carrying capacity of 9,000 people. The theatre is cut into the hill’s flank in the classic Greek style, but it also has a Roman stage and facade. Marcus Aurelius, the Roman Emperor, ordered the architect Zenon to construct it (161-180 AD).
You may view the ruins of the ancient stadium on your right once you have explored the theatre by continuing up the steps and road. The stadium is in a poor state of ruin, but the remains of the seats and arches may still be seen. You can only see the exciting contests and Roman games that would have been held in the middle of these remains.
Aspendos is a tiny city nowadays, yet it is home to several popular tourist destinations. It served as a commercial hub in ancient times and had a navigable river connecting it to the sea. Since 1994, the International Opera and Ballet Festival has been held here annually. It is significant to remember also that this theater continues to host a variety of festivals, cultural events, concerts, and the famous legendary Fire Of Anatolia Show
Anyone who has difficulty walking should rethink booking. Otherwise, this is a historical trip for people of all ages that highlights the natural beauty of the area, making for a nice and peaceful day out.
