Our guide was excellent in providing an understanding of this ancient city and its ruins. There was plenty to see and experience.

We loved Perge , one of our best place found in Antalya area, the main road in marble with all columns just send you in the past, it is a nice place and for me really impressive.

I went there in April and the sunshine was burning us, so I don't recommend this place in hot summer days, unless you bring sun-hat and/or put on sun cream. The whole area is well-preserved, although it's undergoing some restorations, so some places might be closed. The entrance fee is 15 TLs which is quite reasonable. You can reach there... More

I saw a number of ruins in Turkey, and these were among some of the best, though not the best. The area is quite large and gives you a number of structures to view. I recommend either doing research first or traveling with a guide, so you understand what you are seeing - that makes it much more enjoyable. I... More

I was impressed by the archeology of these two cities. I visited the ciry but unfortunately, I was not allowed to visit the Historic Amphitheatre in Aspendos and Perge as they were under restoration. I found out that Perge , for a long time ago, used to be a part of Lydia civilization which was conquered by the Great Cyrus... More

This experience and all the hard work put into the excavation is just simply amazing. I would like to visit 25 years from now to see how much more there will be. This visit is a must if visiting nearby.

The city of Perge (the ruins that is) is a must to see when visiting Turkey. It's only a few kilometers from the Antalya airport, and very well marked if you are driving yourself. The size will blow you away - and what you see puts Rome to shame when you really think about it. Read up a little before... More

I can imagine when finished Perge will give Ephuses a run for it's money. As it is it's only half unearthed but is still epic. Must be seen in congestion with the museum in Antalya where the important statuarty resides for safety sake. The workmen are still excavation and unlike in the US you can walk right up and see...

Few minutes from Antalya, ancient city of Perge. Entrance 15 lira, opened every day from 9:00 till 17:00. To visit a place you will need at least 1 hour. Agora, hammam - it is good idea to read a little bit about the place before as the information inside the city is really poor.
