Greek Amphitheater, Side

Be transported back to the culture of antiquity at Greek Amphitheater, one of the well-preserved highlights of the Side ruins system. The mighty theater was originally constructed in 2 CE, boasting a seating capacity of 15,000-20,000--making it one of the largest of its kind in the Ancient Pamphylia region. Although some of the stage area has collapsed, the construction provides a vivid insight into life and entertainment millennia ago. After exploring the historical construction, take time to appreciate the views of the ruins complex as it sits amidst the surrounding countryside and the sea. There are special paths for visitors, but these are not particularly well-maintained; sensible shoes are recommended.

  • One of the sights in Antalya Antalya. Side Theatre. The largest port of ancient Pamphylia Side, towards the sea, a small peninsula extending in a North-South direction. Strabo and Arrianos, located in Western Anatolia, was built by those who migrate from Kyme Aeolia.
