Day Tour of Aspendos

For those wishing to see some of the area’s greatest treasures in a short space of time this one day tour is ideal, especially if you are only staying in Turkey for a week to 10 days. First you travel to the truly awesome Aspendos Theatre which is an incredibly well preserved Roman amphitheatre with seating for 1500, still used for operas and ballets today. Nearby stand the remains of a basilica and one of the largest aqueducts in Anatolia. From Aspendos you travel to Manavgat Waterfalls where milky white foaming water rushes powerfully over the rocks and there are shady gardens and restaurants making the falls a very pleasant resting spot. Lastly you visit Side, one of the best known classical sites in Turkey with its magnificent theatre, Temple of Apollo and Roman baths. If you are lucky to have a longer stay in Turkey then you may prefer to book private transport in order to spend more time in each of these locations. Side is worthy of a full day visit.
