Trip Planner: Europe / Turkey / Turkish Mediterranean Coast / Antalya Province / Manavgat / Side / Ancient Theater
Be transported back to the culture of antiquity at Ancient Theater, 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.

Beautiful historical setting. Can walk round and get up close. Very cheap entry to go inside the theatre for a better view. Information all around so you can really imagine what was there in its prime. Plus shops and bars on the doorstep so makes for a great day out.
