We enjoyed the tour of Perge. I kept wishing that I could be transported back in time in order to see this place when it was in its glory. The Romans had developed wonderful innovations for their time. It was quite spectacular. If you have the time, please visit this with a well-versed tour guide; you won't be disappointed.

Perge has enough preserved and excavated ruins to get a good impression of what life might have been like in the 2nd Century AD. It is similar in size and composition to many other Roman sites...lots of columns and wall segments intact, and an especially well defined agora. What makes Perge special (in our opinion) is the well preserved (and... More

It is so beautiful to walk around Perge. There is no chance to miss the ancient city wall when in Antalya but still don't rush over it, take your time and indulge yourself in the beauty.

Still under excavation and the preservation is going on. Ruins date back to the Roman Empire . In fact most of turkey is full of Roman and Greek ruins who ruled the country at various times.

We went here as part of a tour with a guide, who really explained it all very well so that we could imagine how it was when people loved there.

Anyway we came there in the morning..s. somehow for free, had a walk in such a calm world of columns, roman streets, baths, joined... More

We had never heard of this site before visiting it on a tour. What a great surprise! The theater and stadium are reasonably intact. In the more-or-less complete baths, you can see the Roman heating systems. Other fragments are partially reconstructed. The streets are paved with large stones and a canal is almost fully intact. This is a large, impressive... More
