The best-known attraction among the ruins of Aspendos is the great theater, an amazingly well preserved vestige of Roman architecture that may be as impressive as Rome's own Colosseum.

Well preserved and in use Romano Greek theatre, recommend you visit early or late in the day as it is a sun trap and gets very hot. Best to visit on a guided tour with local expert guide

Breathtaking ancient theater. It is a bit outside of the town centre but you can use shuttle services or a taxi. Taxi is more expensive of course. Currently there are some props placed on the stage for the upcoming play.

This is the most intact Roman theatre I have ever seen. It appears that once the marble tiles covering the concrete blocks were removed, thieves did not want the ugly concrete blocks. The result is that the entire theatre, including the columns at the top...More

Aspendos is one of the best well-reserved ruins and I personally believe that it's one of the MUSTs in the area. Easy to reach the ruins (minibus/bus), you might spend more or less two hours there. Walk around the ruins and visit the theater at...More

Sorry, can't tell you that. We were part of an organised group from our hotel and others but any local hotels should be able to get the info for you.
