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.

A beautiful, worth seeing ancient city if you are visiting Antalya. Perge city is still in a pretty good shape, even though it was built more than 3000 years ago.

Perge is a wonderful roman era site really well preserved, there is still a lot standing like the entrance gates, baths, amphitheatre and agora. It's amazing how you can travel in time there. We had an amazing guide with us who explained us everything. I highly recommend the visit. The tickets cost 20 Turkish liras. It is wonderful to walk... More

This is a great area to explore full of historic relics. Lots of little narrow streets meandering into each other, shops and restaurants in abundance, a must see.

Very large city. You have to spend at least 4 hours to visit. I didn't like puplic toilettes. You need pair of trecking shoes and comphy pants.

You need over an hour to visit this magnificent site. Take a long slow stroll around the place. We went in March so there was no one around and we had the whole site to ourselves. Then you can savour the atmosphere and be transported back in time. A fantastic city!

after a visit to Ephesus, Perge probably seems like nothing to most people. but i still enjoyed the visit to Perge because it's more manageable than the big Ephesus complex. Another good thing was that we went in the winter, so it wasn't as crowded as it would have been in the summer so we could walk around taking lots... More

One of the most well preserved sites we have ever visited. We were just blown away and certainly the best of the main 3 in the area. Go to Antalya museum first to get context. At the moment the theatre and stadium are not open as there are excavations which is ashame but you still see them from the outside.... More
