Last Minute Trip - What to see?

by Dalixam

Hi there!

My girlfriend and I just - as in an hour ago - bought two tickets to Side (We live in Denmark). I'd like to know if anyone has ideas of what to go see in the local area. We will be staying there for two weeks, and I'll go crazy if I spend 14 days on the beaches, so for a few days, we'll rent a car. If there are any particular sightings reachable by car, we should experience, please let us know!

Thanks a lot!

The town of side is full of shops, mostly selling jeans and shirts (which I thought was kind of odd in a tourist town). There is a nice small museum and the amphitheater as well as the temple ruins right on the beach. You can take boat trips from Side. For day trips, there is Aspendos- a very impressive amphitheater, the ruins of the city of Perga, several waterfalls, and the city of Antalya- but I don't think there is too much there to interest a tourist, it's basically just a big city.

I live in Alanya for the sommer months. Alanya is only one hour away from Side. I will be in Alanya till end of August. If you send me a VTmail we can have together a beer in Alanya.
Have a good time. I am sure Cotton Castle and finally Cappadocia the land of fairy Chimneys.

aspendos for sure if you are in to history.
it´s one of the best preserved roman theaters in the world.

you could also consider spending 2-3 days and take a tour to cappadocia.
there are plenty of local tour operators making these trips for a resonable price.

if you decide to rent a car then you can drive a couple of hours west and see places like olympos and demra or you can drive a couple of hours east and visit anamur where you have a jice castle and almost no tourists.

If you are lucky, you may catch a show at Aspendos, we did and it was increadible.

Cappadocia is my all time favorite destination in Turkey, a long drive but not bad if you break it up with stops on the way. The roads in Turkey are very good and well signposted. If you can afford it, plan for about 3 nights in Cappadocia, there is so much to see in this area.

Enjoy your holiday, Turkey has never dissapointed me yet.
