You may find that tour operators in Kalkan wll be organising trips, and we suggest contacting them to find out more.  You can find their contact details in the KTLN Business Directory.

The venue
Aspendos is not far from Antalya.  From Kalkan, it is a 4 hour journey by road.

The antique theatre at Aspendos is a formidable 20,000 capacity stone construction, built almost 2,000 years ago by the Romans.  It was renovated by the Ottomans about 800 years ago.

It's a perfect venue for an opera, with excellent acoustics.  But be aware that you should take cushions with you, as the stone seats are hard.
