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.

Perge is a magnificent city and loaded with history dating back Bronze Age. With three kids in tow, it's challenging to understand the history in detail, however, the family enjoyed the fun walk! Running around surrounded with ruins, former mosques and churches, it was a lovely afternoon (or full day for history buffs), must visit place in Antalya!

Visited Perge after Termessos. You can reach it by Dolmus, which leaves you at a 30 minutes walk to the site, use public bus to get the same result much cheaper or hitch-hike. Perge has a reputation as a Touristy place. Luckily, end of October it was relatively quiet. Came in at the beginning of the afternoon and about 30... More

Interesting site - but only basic signage helping to explain what's what and how things worked in Roman times. With a guide, we understood a lot more about the archaeology (what had yet to be dug up/excavated), and about what each room was used for (the 'bathing culture', how long people spent in each of the bath rooms, how it...

Built in the beginning as a Church then transformed to a Mosque, this building told the historic conquering Antalya. Because of disaster so the building has transformed to be like today, but visitor can still review the history in it.

An ancient city that dates back to the Bronze age, it was occupied by Greek, Byzintine, Roman and Turkish cultures. Visited by the likes of Constanatine the Great and St. Paul, its imporessive agora and temple ruins make it an amazing site and a must-see on your visit to Turkey.

The ruins are well preserved and well worth a visit. Interesting to see how they heated the water in the baths and the river running through the center is very neat. I don't know how all of these arches are still standing after a few thousand years.

If you are a History Buff you will love Perge. When visiting you can imagine what it was like in in its Hayday. From the relaxing in the Baths to the busyness of the market. Sadly we saw it whilst on a day tour, so were unable to stay as long as we would have liked. But will go back... More

Located just 5-6 kms from highway, Entry fee 20TL, Recent Archaeological discovery... You can see the historical ruins and enjoy. I liked it very much and took snaps with family.
