DESTINATIONS turkey antalya Do & See Side


Nestled between Antalya and Alanya, Side is steeped in romantic legend, with claims of a tryst between Cleopatra and Mark Antony. Here, you'll find history quite literally underfoot, with ruins at every turn. Its ancient theatre, capable of holding 25,000 spectators, is fortified by sturdy walls and perched on a flat expanse of land. Neighbouring the theatre, a striking Roman bath has been repurposed into an archaeological museum.

Do & See

Antalya boasts must-see attractions to cater to every age and taste. History enthusiasts can step back in time with sites like the Hadrianus Triumphal Arch, Hierapolis and Yivli Minareli. Families with children will delight in the thrilling Waterhill, Atlantis, Park Aqua and Dolphinarium, or explore the fascinating marine life at Antalya Aquarium. Don't limit yourself to the city limits — adventurous spots like Side and Belek await outside Antalya. The only task left is picking your favourite attractions.
