      Of the 12 Olympian deities, Apollo is the most significant in Greek mythology. Built in his honor at Side was the Temple of Apollo. Also known as Didyma, this ancient Greek sanctuary is believed to have been constructed before the coast was colonized by Ionia. The city is also home to the Temple of Dionysus, Nymphaeum, an Agora and Columned Road.

      The best preserved of the three temples on the peninsula’s tip is the Temple of Apollo. As you walk around, you’ll notice that the frieze erected above the five reconstructed columns depicts the heads of Medusa – one of many fine details at the monumental structure.

      Upon returning to Alanya you will cool off at Manavgat Waterfalls. Best viewed from an altitude, the water foams and creates a white mist as it crashes over the rocks. Teeming with turtles and trout fish, the water is surrounded by picturesque tea gardens, where you can rest and absorb the beauty of the pine forest.

      The Temples of Turkey

      Most people think about the Temple of Apollo when they visit Turkey and while it is one of history’s most significant structures, it’s not the only temple in the country that tells a story of the past. Considered to be the site of the oldest temple in the world, Gobekli Tepe is an archaeological site located in modern-day Turkey’s Southeastern Anatolia Region. The rise of civilization can also be uncovered at Ephesus. Said to have been inhabited from 6000 BC, this ancient city is home to the column fragment remains of the Temple of Artemis.

      Non-refundable if canceled within 48 hours of requested services.
