These ruins are good to see in a post card, there were no signs explaining the ruins plus it is yet to be recognized as a world heritage by UNESCO.

I never expected to see so much of a Roman city in such good condition and its history in the Bible makes it all the more interesting. There is an almost complete central street lined with columns as well as sufficient walls to allow you to take regular shade-breaks in your tour around the city. Well worth the entry price... More

Well sign posted site. Does get very hot as no breeze or shade so make sure take plenty of water and hats. Good cafés by entrance to cool off at after visiting. Theatre was closed for renovation but go to the stadium and climb to top for decent views.

An archaelogical site that rivals Ephesus can be found at Perge, Antalya. Although not as big an area,as Ephesus, the site site exhibits well preserved Roman baths, acropolis, agora, colonades, gates, archways, and amphitheater. The thoroughfares are lined with many upright and standing columns that allows the visitor to better visualize how the site was during the ancient times. The... More

A fascinating insight into Greek and Roman civilizations. If it hadn't been so hot we could have spent quite a while looking at the ruins. Try to choose a cooler day and allow plenty of time.

A nice archaeological site - although with a fee of 20 TL one might expect a better series of interpretive signs than actually exist at the present time. I suggest reading up before you go - or have a sneaky scan through the glossy and expensive guidebook (with see through overlays) in the entrance shop: before you head off to... More

A fantastic example of Roman life. It is very exposed and therefore extremely hot in the summer, so take plenty of water. It has everything you would expect to see in a Roman ruin and more.
