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.

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.

If you are planning to visit Antalya museum better to visit this place first. An amazing and impressing old city. The good thing this is near to Antalya and easy access to public transportation. Try to get Bus line 511 from where you staying and drop in Aksu city. The rest is 20 min walk or a 3 min taxi... More

This site is an easy trip out from Antalya. which is where our cruise docked. We decided to share the cost of a minibus with four other couples and it came to about 20 euros each. The trip out took a little under half hour and was pleasant in and of itself. However there were a number of gasps when... More

The site is vast and excavation is ongoing. I saw more Roman remains here than I did in Rome! Admittedly the treasures of Perge are mostly on display in the beautiful museum in Antalya, but this where they originated and belong. The artistry in the stone pillars, canals, pavements, dwellings is astonishing and abundant. Surprisingly the entire site is open... More

I was just blown away by the beauty of this site. You can still see pieces of old pottery around the place.

Only 20% of this city can be seen, the rest is under ground still. This sounds like you can see little, but the area is very big. It is great to really see how the city looked at that time. It is recommended to visit it with a guide, so you can get all the information.

We travelled to this place by taxi early morning at 8.00AM from our hotel -BEST WESTERN KHAN in Antalya. It took us about 30 minutes to cover the distance of about 17 kms. Since it was early morning we were the first people to enter this place. There is an entry fee of about 25 Turkish Lira per person &... More
