the ruins are extensive and some in great shape enabling you to see how ingenious the romans were at building. Easy to walk around the site with plenty of great photo opportunities.

Such an unusual place of Turkish history, a must visit on your trip. Take a hat and lots of water if visiting in summer as it's such a vast place

Very impressive Greek and Roman ruins. Too bad that there is almost no decent description on the places there.

Due to the extended territory of the archeological site but also to our great guide (ex- history professor), we felt like traveling throught the ages! Still a lot to be done (archeological work in progress), but on the right track!

The ruins at Perge are very large. The structures that are still standing are amazing and you get a real sense of how it may have been. There isn’t much shelter there, so go prepared. Whilst the area is large, I don’t think you need to spend too much time there. Definitely worth going!

A trip to Perge is a very interesting and worthwhile experience enjoyed all the more if you have a guide who speaks reasonable English and is interested in being informative. It is amazing to see how enterprising the Romans were and when you see how well the site is preserved it is a credit to the authorities involved. The Romans... More
