Full description
On this 8-hour trip you’ll head out in the morning for a visit to Aspendos, one of the most important cultural and economic centers of Pamphylia. Every year thousands of people come to see the best well-preserved amphitheater in Turkey, built in 155 with a capacity of 7,000 spectators. Today the amphitheater hosts 10,000 people and shows such as the annual Aspendos International Opera and Ballet Festival. After lunch you’ll visit the ancient city of Side. The city is located on a peninsula and features ruins of a Roman amphitheater, a columned road, temple to Dionysus, and to a museum in the former Turkish bath. Admire the Temple of Apollo, which is the most beautiful site in Side, situated by the sea on the ancient harbor. On the way back to Alanya you’ll stop to visit the Manavgat Waterfalls. This is a place of exceptional natural beauty and fresh, clean air. You’ll see pine forests, waterfalls, and a river replete with trout and turtles.

    Very interesting

    Shocked by the level of knowledge from our guide and the vast history surrounding ancient city and aspendos. Great tour. Long day but worth it. Be sure to wear trainers as terrain is hard going, and take water. You are out for 2 hours in the hot sun in ancient city.

    Excellent tour with excellent tour guides

    The guided tour was excellent because Betty and Alex were perfect tour guides. Betty has explained nearly everything and has a big knowledge about the Roman time. It was not just a tour, it was explained history. We definitely would book another tour with her. Thanks from our site for the tour.
