We came in the early evening in our car the ruins were empty and we had a guidebook to walk around with. Was very relaxing and my daughter was delighted to see small turtles roaming around. Be careful though as some dodgy hobo came up to me and my wife and tried seeking us a coin which he claimed he... More

About 20 km from Antalya you find the historical place Perge. It is a place from the Roman era site. It costs 20 lire for entrance for adults. I recommend good shoes as there can be some walking in rough terrain. We were there for about 30 minutes since we had short time but you can easily spend 1-2 hours... More

It's well worth doing a combined day trip to Perge and Aspendos (Roman Theatre). Both sites are well preserved and very interesting. A large amount of the amazing statues originally at Perge are now in the Museum of Architecture at Kaleici. It was very useful to visit the museum first to then imagine how Perge would have looked in all... More

Wonderful roman era site, alot of it still standing, entrance gates, baths, amphitheatre. Take good shoes as it's a large site, go in the mornings early to avoid the crowds and high temps of southern Turkey, and there are guides available to walk you through. These are really a good value I think as just walking yourself with a guidebook... More

It is situated in outskirts of Antalya city about 20 km from the center, can be reached by local buses running frequently from the city center, continued with minibuses that are running right in front of the site. Perge is the best preserved and excavated ruins in the region, excavations have been going on in this site over 20 years,... More

It looked very nice but unfortunately due to heavy rain we could not walk around. Is however not easy to find due to lack of road markings/signs

The site is a considerable size. You can get a really good feel for how it must have looked like during Roman times. The Roman baths are still easy to identify. We took a walk around the top of the Stadium too and could easily imagin chariot races being held there. There are photo teams wandering around the site dressed... More
