Know More about this tour

Start your journey into history with a visit to the ancient city of Aspendos. It is situated 50 km east of Antalya on the banks of Kpray river (ancient name Euromydon). Aspendos was one of the most important cities in Pamphylia, its cultural and economic center. Now it is a very popular tourist sight famous for the Roman amphitheatre built in 155 AD by the architect Zenon during the reign of Marcus Aurelius. Theatre of Aspendos is one of the best preserved examples of Roman theatre architecture in the world. Walk up steps of the theater's tiered seating area, admire all the beauty of its galleries and stage decorations. With a capacity up to 15,000 people, amphitheatre is still in use for important cultural events and festivals. Every summer it hosts the annual Aspendos International Opera and Ballet Festival. The world-famous Turkish dance group Fire of Anatolia presents a new program Aspendos Efsanesi (meaning Legend of Aspendos) on the stage of the ancient theatre from May till November. So do not miss the opportunity to visit this gorgeous amphitheatre to fully appreciate its grandeur and undeniable historical value.

Then drive in the direction of Antalya to visit an amazingly beautiful green park with Duden Waterfalls. It is one of the most visited natural attractions in Antalya region.

The way to waterfall requires going down some stairs. Admire an incredible beauty of the turquoise water cascading from the height of 20meters. Duden Waterfalls arevery spectacular. Do not leave this place without visiting a cave and taking a picture behind the water flow. Then enjoy walking along the river with turquoise waters still listening the sounds of the falling water. The waterfalls you are going to visit are Upper Duden Waterfalls. The Lower Duden Falls cascade over the 40 meters highrock platform directly into the Mediterranean sea. It can be seen during a boat trip along the coast of Antalya.

After lunch go to explore the ancient ruins of Side. This spectacular city is situated on a peninsula about 1 km long and 400 m across. Side is a city with long and rich past, as testified by the numerous ruins from the Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine eras. What can be seen while walking through the ancient city: nymphaeum (fontain), remains of city walls, agora, amphitheatre, colonnaded streets with many of the marble columns, city gates, ruins of the Roman bath, basilica and three temples.
