Explore the Greek God’s Land at Manavgat Aspendos Side

The tour includes a lunch stop at Side, a historical peninsula nestled among sand dunes and the Mediterranean Sea. Side offers visitors a mix of ancient ruins, modern tourist attractions, and temples dedicated to the Greek god Apollo, situated atop steep cliffs.

A visit to the ancient city of Aspendos is also part of the itinerary. Home to Turkey’s most well-preserved Roman amphitheatre, the entrance to this historical site is subtly located, leading directly ahead rather than to the right. The amphitheatre’s size and condition are particularly striking.

Experience Ancient Wonders in Manavgat Aspendos Side

Guests are encouraged to climb the amphitheatre’s steps to fully appreciate its grandeur. It is estimated to have held around 9,000 spectators. This theatre, designed in a typical Greek manner with a Roman stage and facade, was commissioned by Emperor Marcus Aurelius and built by the architect Zenon (161-180 AD).

Further exploration reveals the ancient stadium’s ruins, accessible by ascending further. Although in ruins, the remnants of seating and arches hint at the grand events and games that once took place. This site offers a glimpse into the vibrant past of Roman entertainment.

Rediscover Ancient History

Today, Aspendos is a small town that attracts many visitors. Historically, it was a significant trade center with a river that allowed access to the sea. The town has been hosting the International Opera and Ballet Festival since 1994, making it a cultural hotspot. The ancient theatre still serves as a venue for a wide array of events, including festivals, cultural performances, concerts, and the acclaimed Fire Of Anatolia Show.
