"Side - not what we expected" Side by Tracyden
Side Travel Guide: 143 reviews and 364 photos
We stayed in Side for a fortnight- what the guidebooks had made sound like an idylic little village filled with ruins turned out to be a larger town with a massive main road. We never really worked out the rules of the road - the traffic ignored red lights - pedestrian crossings and other vehicles. We just ran and took our chance.
True to the guidebook though - there were lots of ruins to walk around - you could buy a map of these if you wish or just wander around and around and around like we did. Nothing is fenced off so you can get up close and touch the history.
Side has a massive open air theatre that still has evening performance - Carmen was showing when we visited.
- Cons:everything else
