Antiquities & Sights

Ancient Town of Side

Side, one of the best-known classical sites in Turkey. The ancient old town itself lies on a promontory 300 meters wide and 800 metres long and today, despite tourism development where new is meeting old, the town still remains the most unique and charming resort on Turkey's southern coast. As you walk from the top of the high street to the harbour, which was once a small fishing port and is now filling up with excursion boats, you can look down the small side streets to see the sea on either side of you. The old town has managed to retain many of its old features including its architecture and also the amazing archeological sites. At every turn you will be faced with a new monument or ruin which never ceases to amaze. Side offers excellent souvenir shopping, harbour side restaurants and bars.

Side - Apollo's Temple

These astounding temple ruins built 250 A.D. and are still standing in part. It's located at the bottom of the Side north/south peninsula. Around the corner there are family friendly bars & restaurants overlooking the wonderful small harbour with small fishing boats and traditional Gulet (sail boats) can take you on half or all day boat trips along the beautiful coast line. Fishing & Diving trips can also be chartered from here.

Ephesus Amphitheatre

Ephesus is the best-preserved classical city on the Mediterranean and perhaps the best place in the world to get the feeling for what life was like in Roman times. As a strategic coastal gateway to the Eastern World, this Ionian refuge grew to be the second largest city in the Roman Empire, the site of a Christian shrine, and one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Legend has it that the Virgin Mary, accompanied by St. Paul, came to Ephesus at the end of her life, circa 37-45 AD. Renaissance church historians mentioned the trip, and it is said that local Christians venerated a small house near Ephesus as Mary's. In 1967 Pope Paul VI visited the site, where a chapel now stands, and confirmed the authenticity of the legend. Also the Basilica of St. John is located near Ephesus. St. John is said to have lived the last years of his life here and after his death, a shrine was located over his grave.

Ancient city of Perge

An important city of ancient Pamphylia, Perge is situated 18 kilometres from Antalya and was originally settled by the Hittites around 1500 BC, St Paul preached his first sermons here. Most of today's Perge belongs to the Roman Period and anyone interested in history will love to explore the long colonnaded street, once paved with marble and lined with shops, the agora, the stadium, the public baths and the amphitheatre. One tip - try to avoid visiting this popular attraction in the middle of the day in peak summer.

Seleukia Ancient Ruined Town

Built in the 2nd century and seating 15,000 people, the theatre is still 95% complete. The theatre has amazing acoustics and during the summer months concerts are held here - listening to an opera or a musical in such an ancient setting is an evening not to be missed.
