Full description
Enjoy the convenience of pickup from your hotel in Alanya on this day trip and travel in an airconditioned bus to the sites of the ancient cites of Side and Aspendos. Travel into the Duden Waterfalls. Board a spacious and comfortable outside your hotel and relax on the drive to Side, an impressive archaeological site containing a wealth of ancient ruins that date back to the Roman period. Imagine the past as you see a gigantic amphitheater, stadium, Roman gates, city walls, and Roman baths. Walk through the 500-meter-long main street with numerous columns, fountains, and an acropolis dating back to the Bronze Age. Continue on to Aspendos, situated on the banks of the Köprüçay River. Once one of the most important cities in Pamphylia, Aspendos is now a very popular tourist sight famous for its excellently-preserved Roman amphitheater built in 155 AD. Walk up the amphitheater's tiered steps and admire the beauty of its galleries, which are still in use today. Stop to refill with a delicious lunch before making your way to the ruins of Side, which span the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine eras. Admire its fountains, city walls, agora, amphitheater, and marble columns. Take in stunning views over the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea at the the temple of Apollo. On the way back to Alanya, enjoy a relaxing soak after a long day of exploring in the Duden Waterfalls. Enjoy the green environment, fresh air, pine scent, cool atmosphere, and spectacular falls.

A nice tour, but dragged a bit towards the end. We were on the road from about 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., first in Side, then to the Aspendos Theater and then to lunch, then to a jewelry manufactory, then to the Duden waterfalls and then to 'the oldest' Turkish delight shop. The two purchase stops should not have been, especially the jeweler. The description didn't say a word about it, so we didn't have a lot of money with us. Our tour guide was very nice, we stopped every now and then and he showed us a flower or cotton from a field. Lunch was more so-so, there were already three tables occupied in the room and it was extremely noisy.

Waterfalls are beautiful but not hysterically spectacular, Side was worth a visit, friendly and cozy beach front restaurants and hotels, but a visit to Jewel shop and Turkish Delight shop was not necessary
