One of the most popular holiday places on the Turkish Riviera has for years been luring with its charm. The small town (18 thousand inhabitants) is located right near the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It has an extremely rich history dating back several hundred years BC.  

The ancient Side is primarily an impressive wealth coming from piracy and slave trade, evidenced by its magnificent buildings. We can admire their remains until today. Here, there is one of the largest theaters in Anatolia for 15 thousand spectators, a huge agora with innumerable columns, small but full ow works of art museum of antiquity, built on the site of Roman baths, a Byzantine basilica. Undoubtedly, the biggest attraction of the city is the Temple of Athena and Apollo from the 2nd century A.D., located right on the seafront, which is a magical place after dark. Side is a cosy spot where you can discover your favourite cafe, tavern, take walks along the winding narrow streets, and in the evening head over to a disco and dance till the morning light. Besides this obvious beauty, there is a wide sandy beach and excellent hotels, where you can sunbathe by the pools for hours on end while having delicious drinks and savour the lack of turmoil, as well as an escape from everyday life.

Pilot: Tourists are looked after by a Polish resident, whose tasks include help upon arrival, departure and stay, as well as registration for local trips.

Visas: required; tourist visa is valid 90 days for a period of 180 days (the visa entitles you to repeatedly cross the border); to obtain a visa, your passport must meet the following requirements:
- validity at entrance: 60 days from the date of expiry of the visa
- at least one blank page

A tourist visa must be obtained through the E-visa system (https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/; cost: 20 USD/person). It is also possible to purchase a visa upon arrival in Turkey at sales points at border crossing points (cost respectively: 30 USD/25 EUR/20 GBP/person, payable in cash). It is recommended to purchase visas via the electronic system. When crossing the Turkish border the person entering may be asked to submit valid medical insurance (for Itaka Customers it is the travel document that contains the insurance certificate no.) or proof of means of subsistence.
Temporary passport holders cannot obtain a visa in the E-visa system or at the border.

Local time: GMT+2

Language: Turkish; you can also communicate in English, more and more often in Polish.

Currency: Turkish lira (TRY); 1 EUR = 6 TRY.

Tips: the rule applies that you give as much as you can afford. Earnings in Turkey are low and tips are often a great financial help. It is customary to tip drivers on local trips and waiters - approx. 5-10%.

Flight duration: Poland - Antalya - approx. 3 hours

Prices: beer - approx. 2.5-3 EUR (in discotheques at the port approx. 5 EUR), lunch - approx. 10 EUR.

Air-conditioning: turned on from June to September, it often operates for more than half a day, because it is assumed that guests will spend most of the day outside the hotel. In some hotels air-conditioning is individually controlled and can function 24h.

All Inclusive: in Turkey, all-inclusive offers usually cover only meals and local drinks at limited times, usually from 10:00 to 23:00. Any extra benefits like sports, safety deposit boxes, massages, saunas, and even the mini-bar are additionally payable. Aside from imported drinks, freshly squeezed juices and Turkish coffee are additionally payable. All-inclusive does not apply to the beach, unless indicated otherwise in the hotel description.

Transport: operates very efficiently and is inexpensive, even from hotels far from the city centre it is easy to get there by dolmus, or local mini-bus; fare price: approx. 2 EUR/15 km; taxis are equipped with meters; fare price: approx. 1.5 EUR/1 km.

Beaches: entry is free, renting sunbeds and umbrellas payable, the fee depends on the region; Cleopatra's beach: approx. 5 EUR, the eastern beach in Alanya and in Side: approx. 3 EUR.

Noteworthy: in Turkey the rule is that you cannot bring any drinks or fruit bought outside the hotel into room; in a tropical climate food spoils quite quickly, and insect may appear.

Local trips: organized by local tourist agencies on terms specified by them. There is a possibility that, if there are too few participants, a trip may be canceled.
