Side

The star attraction of Turkey's southern Mediterranean coastline, the seaside town of Side draws big crowds with a blend of well-preserved ancient ruins and modern construction, often side by side. Packed with restaurants and souvenir shops, the city thrives because of foreign travelers, lured by the region's rich history and cultural heritage. Occupied by Alexander the Great in 333 BCE, the coastal town long flourished as the center of Greek culture. Two centuries later Side came under Roman control, quickly becoming a major hub for the olive oil trade. Elements of both of these ancient cultures remain highly visible in and around the city, including the remains of a large amphitheater and a temple dedicated to Apollo. Add Side and other Turkey destinations to your travel plans using our Turkey attractions planner.
