Lonely Planet review
Built in the 2nd century AD, Side's spectacular theatre seats up to 20,000 spectators and rivals nearby Aspendos for sheer drama. Look to the wall of the skene (stage building) for reliefs of figures and faces, including those of Comedy and Tragedy.
East of the theatre and across the road from the museum are the remains of an agora , which once held a slave market. Nearby is the ruined circular-shaped Temple of Tyche dedicated to the goddess of fortune, and an arresting latrine with two-dozen marble seats.
