Owner description: 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.

“open air museum”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

This antique town has both museum building and open-air museum. Some of the statues were stolen in near past. Because of climate ,you can easily visit anytime of the year(except heavy rain)My suggestion is :visit this town with a proffesional tourist guide.If you have a time, you can also visit another antique town where Alexander the Great never concoured.

“Divine!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

This was one of the most beautiful and naturally unspoilt places places I have ever been to. We visited this as a part of our guided tour to Aspendos and the Duden waterfalls and what a sight to behold with the old Roman and Corinthian ruins dating back thousands of years. The ruins have been preserved so well that the history was able to be almost relived by visitors
