Side used to be one of the most important trade centre in antiquity and now it's one of the most popular holiday resorts in Southern Turkey. The merchants took up the local language, the name Side means pomegranate, the fruit symbolising abundance and fertility. During our time we will visit the old colonnaded streets, monuments of fountains, agora, Dyanisos temple. The most important ruins are the Roman style amphitheatre and the Temple of Apollo with its huge columns.
After a short drive we arrive at Manavgat waterfalls which is approximately 4 Km from the centre of Manavgat. The water falls flows gently into a basin the shape of a horseshoe into the Manavgat River.
