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.

Must visit when you are in Antalya. Large amphitheater, they called it one of ancient ruins but it's still on strong condition. Bring your hat and sunglasses when you are here, and obviously camera. There is souvenir shop in the main gate as well.

We visited 4 ancient Roman amphitheater’s in Turkey during our trip, and the one at Aspendos was the grandest and least rustic thanks to restoration. On the day we visited there was a gladiator present who stalked around creating atmosphere. You can enter this with...More
