The historical site of Perge, 18 kilometers east of Turkey, holds the vast remains of what was once the most propserous city of the ancient world. Enter by passing through the arch of the Roman Gate to be greeted by an amphitheater, the Hellenistic Gate (quite well preserved) and richly decorated remains of the city wall and much more.

Outstanding. Be sure you guide does this first, as you will go way back to do this the next day. Terrific.

Unfortunately this was one of 3 place we visited on a day tour out of Antalya. This meant we only had just over an hour here and only in the town centre. Next time we will rent a car and spend the whole day here, but only after reading more of its history. Very well preserved and it was easy... More

Impressive remains of a Roman town, with many sections well preserved. Now that Palmyra in Syria is inaccessible (and tragically partially destroyed) one of the best remaining examples of Roman-style city planning (Palmyra is, of course, Nabatean).

Went there in may 2012. The Turkish guide was good. However, if it's too hot, wear a hat and take water with you.

Although many of the remains are from the later Roman or Byzantine period the site is quite amazing. There has been some restoration insofar as columns have been re-sited on reproduction bases, this only enhances the impact of the site. None of the restoration is 'faked' you can see quite clearly where stones have been replaced. Overall the site gives... More

The first of the ruins that we saw. It was good and gave a idea of the life that the romans lived during their days. However with little shade and better locations that we saw later (Thermessos & Ephesus), Perge seems to be overhyped.
