    Favorite thing: A ruined Hellenistic port and one-time trysting place of Antony and Cleopatra. Side meant Pomegranete in the local language- which was the symbol used on the coins of Side. Side lost its prominence in the 4th Century AD. with earthquakes, Christian zealots and Arab raids, by the 10Century AD, the site was completely abandoned, left to be buried. Today its history, sandy beaches and lively town area with its many shops and bars are a magnet for the tourists. Its a great holiday destination.

    Favorite thing: Side is a small city about 70 km from Antalya.
    The exact date of its founding is not known. In the language of Anatolia "Side" means Pomegranate. From inscriptions it appears that Side dates back to the Hittite Period. The city was constructed on a peninsula and was a Hellenistic and Roman town, protected by city and sea walls. One's attention is particularly drawn to the city gates and walls, as well as many remains of aqueducts which brought water from the foothills of the Taurus Mountains and the surrounding country. The old baths have been restored and turned into a museum, in which are exhibited some of the statues and art treasures found in Side.

    Favorite thing: Visit 'Side' (pronounced seeday). The beaches are beautiful and so is the weather. There are lots of restaurants to choose from, most of which are within close proximity to the beach.
