Not much else to wander round but worth visiting. Shame you cannot go right down into the arena due to safety.

Really nice surprise to find such a monument next to beach resorts. It is worth the visit! In the center of Side next to a lot of other ruins of the real old town. And they play opera 4 times during summer. Such a treat.

Hi, not sure about Hotels in the area but if you use Tripadvisor and add filters it’s very good at finding just what you need. The whole area around the amphitheater has restaurants within a five min walk in any direction... More
