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.

As it was a huge site it took a couple of hours for us to explore the whole area. It was a highlight of our trip to Antalya and I would highly recommend it.

If you love history then you would love to walk in these ruins . Not proper guides would you find in this place but a stroll is definitely worth it . It's not one of the top sites to see but an off beaten place with so much of history . If you have time at hand while visiting Antalaya... More

Even though Turkey has a lot of ruins, these are some of the best preserved. You can still identify most of the places without the need of a guide. This is a must!

Perge means the half of Antalya Museum. Therefore these two trips should be combined at first or a museum should be constructed in/or nearby Perge. Perge, Expo 2016, Sillyum and Aspendos sites are the parts of a daily excursion destination. Perge and Expo 2016 is very close to center and also airport via new train approach. But from Aksu stop...

This place is absolutely amazingly well preserved! I didn't expect that. Definitely worth visiting. City with a market place, sauna, waterfalls and so on. Dress warmly ( hat and scarf!) in winter time. Windy and cold in the mornings.

Having made the effort to get to Perge by public transport and walking - I found this to be a great disappointment. There are many better preserved and displayed archaeological sites of similar vintage in Turkey. My suggestion would be that unless you are an archaeologist who really needs to see the stones in situ a visit to the amazing... More

If you like ancient culture, you have not to miss this one. Large area, easy to walk, and plenty to see. It is a pity, that the amphitheater is closed, because of danger of collapse. "Southern Baths" are one of the best preserved buildings in Perge.

There is not much to say if you are within 100 Km or 70 miles and don't make it a point to see it you have made a big mistake. One of 16 world heritage sites in Turkey soon to be 17. Yes it is safe as of December 2016. One of the historical spots on the planet.
