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.

Very interesting site

There are very many Roman ruins around, not least Side itself, that can be seen for free but it is still worth a trip to get the feel of a complete Roman and pre Roman town

Perge is capital city of Pamphylia. You can visit to the archeological site of Perge in Antalya. It is 17km away from the city center to the east direction. If you wish to visit to Perge in summer time, I reccomend you to visit either in the morning or evening time due to very hot weather. If you are interested... More

A good historical site to visit with a very large agora. The bath is worth visiting since it shows different parts with different functions and also the bath heating system could be visible.It has a typical Roman city layout. I can sugest you to visit near sun set since the light for photo taking is very well and it is... More

Go see this, its history as it once was and its good outdoors walking, combine it with seeing aspendos amphetheatre as they are done best together. Together id give them a 4 or 5 star, perhe on its own is a 3 star. A part of perge amphetheatre was closed so didnt get to see that part.

A huge ruin and while some of the renovation is unsympathetic I think it helps to give a picture of how it would have looked, A lot to see and we spent three hours just wandering about, got through 4 bottles of water in that time. It is exposed and can be very very warm. Lots of sun cream or... More

This historical place is one the places you must visit in Antalya region. There are no words or pictures to describe walking through Perge ruins. I recommend up really early to avoid crowds.

I wonder what it was like when this place was in full flow with thousands of people watching the games and gladiators? How many people died here?mwhat games did they have, who were the winners. All the questions will go through you mind as you walk through this quite quiet place
