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.

Beautiful ancient city

Did the drive from Antalya, spend about 2 hours just exploring the ruins. It's an experience just to walk down the columns imagining you're in Ancient Roman times.

The most preserved part is the hammam. It still looks beautiful. Most of the other parts are in ruins. So, without guided tour, you will only see bunch of rocks and miss the story. There are many interesting stories we got from our guide.

worth a 30-40 min drive from Antalya. Yes, you need agood set of walking shoes - as the area is uneven. Cost is only 20 Turkish lire. A guide (we had one) is useful, but a good guidebook might be a good substitute.

This is a very interesting and huge site with an incredible history behind it. If you are in Antalya you should check it out, it is easy to get there. But it is a bit overrun by the tourist crowds especially in summer.

After seeing Efez, Aspendos, Thermessos, Didyma, Priene and Milét I thought, that nothing special will be there, but I was wrong! I can recommend this visit! Pity, that amphitheatre was closed. Great atmosphere, specially between strong rains...

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
