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.

Definitely worth booking with a tour guide to fully appreciate the history and features of this amazing site. Good comfortable walking shoes or trainers are recommended as the ground is quite uneven in places. Although it is estimated that only about 20% has so far been excavated there is still plenty to see and fuel your imagination. The Roman baths... More

We loved these ruins - you could really imagine the town that was once there. Amazing sense of history. It's spread over a large area with little shade so comfortable shoes etc. needed.

Great site to see the Roman ruins. The site is big enough to explore and understand the history. Some section is still in its original state which is nice to see

What a wonderful experience to wonder through the city of Perge. The history, completeness of some of the areas and lack of crowds in this town were just perfect. Our guide explained the different areas, the age of some of the areas was just incredible. This area if good for anyone, any age.

I booked this tour with a Thomas Cook guide within my hotel. Our tour guide spoke great English and was super knowledgable about all the history of Perge. It was stiflingly hot the day we visited however this didn't deter our group and we all had an enjoyable time. There's a small shop selling tourist items and snacks outside and... More

I visited Perge with my boyfriend for a day while we were holidaying in Antalya and it blew us both away. You simply can not visit the region and not visit Perge. It is one of the best preserved ancient cities in the world, I am still lost for words. Perge is one of the most astonoshing places you will... More

This amazing area of ruins is set up so that you can walk through them, touching, seeing up close, and being a part of the history. Very little is closed off, and you can wander your own path, closing your eyes and imagining this as one of the busy cities of the area in the past.

The place has an entry fee of 20 TL which is high considering that the place only showcases ruins. There are no eating joints closeby hence one will have to either eat before visiting this place or will have to carry food. Highly recommended to carry bottles of water.
