Great place to visit!

We went as part of an organized trip to Aspendos. It was a bit of a strange feeling in such an old theater (the kind you see in old movies). walking up the stairs was brilliant and the architecture was quite spectacular. It was good to walk through all the tunnels and sit on the stairs / seats! PLEASE DO NOT go and see the camels that are outside. Our guide explained us that they are there all year round and not properly fed and watered. They also lie on hard ground all year round, which has damaged their legs. Camels have nothing to do with this place!
