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.

Nice history of place beside still working theatre even if only few times a year. We were there as part of Side trip so it was just in row of other historical ruins and attractions.

This is a must see. One of the best preserved Roman Theatres of the world. You can go all the way to the top of the theatre to get an amazing view of the ruins. We also had an informative tour of the theatre.

Great views and an amazing place. Take a waterbottle and good walking shoes with you. It's a rocky walking path, but definately worth to see. I really enjoyed the view, the Theater and ruins.
