Hard long road
Nov 2020 • Friends
Hard long road to reach this ancient city. While it is high in the mountains, unfortunately there is not enough information on the road. But the views along the way was very beautiful and many things to see along the way such as koprulu canyon and adam kayalar.

Ancient Selge, in the middle of the Taurus mountains - part of Jeep Safari
Jul 2019 • Family
Why on earth would the Romans build an ancient city in the deep forest of the Taurus mountains? A huge amphitheater, stadium and other remains like a huge roman bridge are there. None are renovated. Free to enter and unprotected. Why does no archeologist team escavatte there? On the remnants of the stade, some houses of the local villagers have been built. The villagers are very poor and live of the few tourists that ome here by jeep, in favor of rafting or other outdoor sports. This is a gem with many many unanswered questions.

Wrong place on map .. it’s 106 km away from Antalya. You need to pay around 100$ if you go by taxi.. better to book a tour there .

Remote ancient city - well-worth the effort though
May 2016 • Couples
The site is not the easiest to traverse, most of the buildings being ruinous, so that you have to scramble over the fallen stonework. The best-preserved structure is the theatre, which we did not have time to visit. Perhaps the greatest joy is in travelling to the site. The scenery is spectacular, and there are even miniature `fairy chimneys' a la Cappadocia

A touch of history
Sep 2016 • Couples
A visit to Lara Beach or Antalya would be lacking without a visit to this historical site which is just up the road. Just wandering about inside the amphitheatre and climbing the stone steps/seating to the top is worth the admission price alone.

A RUIN IS A RUIN, IS A RUIN RIGHT. No!
Oct 2015 • Family
I took some friends here and decided to stay in the mini bus - what a mistka to maka. After they didn't return for ages I walked over to see where they were, and I'm glad I did, Wow! I could stop my imagination wondering what happened here all those years ago, and why no more? Not a long visit but worth it. The Roman Stadium Perge is probably even more provocative.

Fascinating

We asked our hostel owner to suggest a few non-touristy places and this was one of the places he suggested. It is a little difficult to get here, but the drive is pretty scenic.
The village of Selge is very different from all the cities we had visited. There is nothing left in the ruins and you actually have to imagine a few things. Clicked a lot of selfies :-)

Lovely mountain village steeped in history
Oct 2015 • Family
Selge is a lovely village with ancient ruins, the drive in order to reach it, through the mountains is breathtaking. The women of the village are happy to show you the ruined Anphtheater, it is a chance to see Turkish rural life as it is today, and contrasts beautifully with developed seaside resorts like Side

A fascinating site but with no information at all
Apr 2015 • Couples
After some kilometers on a minor road among the mountains with almost no signs you arrive to the scattered village of Selge. From there you can see all around a lot of pieces of stones which are the ruins of the antique Selge.
The site is fascinating and only if you have a lot of imagination, maybe you can try to understand what these lines of stones have been in the ancient past.
The only monument you can identify is the theatre, but only if you find your own way to it: there are neither marked paths nor plates or signs to tell you what you are staying in front of.
Therefore is absolutely necessary you find a guide that can explain to you what you are looking at (you can find someone that can help you as a guide in the villages that are located before the road crosses the roman bridge on the Köprülü canyon).
Luckly we met a young student that during the summer season is working as trekking guide in that area, who let us understand the atmosphere of the site and imagine how the ancient Selge could have been.
Therefore if you want to enjoy this site look for a guide or you have no chance to understand anything !
