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.

Took a trip to Perge and Termessos, of the two Perge is more accessible, but both are easily done in a day trip with a hire car. A little more interpretation would be great as there's loads you see that looks really interesting (including the impressive water and cistern system) the could do with some explanation. Definitely worth getting off... More

You can go to Perge and Aspendos on the same day as they are on the same side of the city. Since there are no shades be prepared for direct sunlight or take umbrella for you and kids along. A must attend I would say.

There are lots of places like this in turkey, though in this one if you are interested to see the formation of a Anatolian city this can be the best place and also you can find an Acropolis which belongs to the Bronze Age which makes the value of this site double.

We chose to go without a guide (after trying tours to other locations). We researched the area so we knew what the areas were and could visualize what it was like before. Highly recommend... not crowded. Be sure to visit the Antalya museum to see the sculptures and artifacts from Perge and other ancient ruin areas.

grand and colossal. Approach is tiring unless you have your own car. Coz by public means you have to take a mini bus from otogar will drive for about two hours than taxi for 15 mins, but its worth the effort. amazing architecture eloquently preserved. Nice spots for photos. worth watching to learn about Hellenistic civillizations and their diaspora, but... More

can't believe how under-populated this site is given its size and importance. go there before it gets developed and on the tour bus list!

Amazing to see how this has been preserved. Walk around, you can almost feel your back in time. Walking the same roads and touching the marble.
