Turkey, Side - Temple of Athena
Sideís temple of Athena, together with an adjacent temple dedicated to Apollo and a later Byzantine basilica, occupy a spectacular site on the edge of the cityís ancient harbour. This is wonderful, picture-postcard stuff! Unfortunately, the rest of Side is a dump: a ghastly collection of bars and discos, cheap eateries, souvenir shops and garish hotels, whatever charm it once had totally destroyed by modern mass tourism. The most disappointing ancient town Iíve ever visited.

Have to agree with you there. When I visited about 10 years ago there were still areas that were untouched, I don't know what its like now. Keep meaning to go back again!
