Perge Ancient City, Antalya

(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Visit the remains of the ancient city of Pamphylia at Perge Ancient City, where Saint Paul preached his first sermon in 46 CE before embarking on his journeys. Pass between the massive antique gates and stroll down the remnants of a colonnaded boulevard to a nymphaeum--a shrine dedicated to nymphs--which lies on the slopes of the acropolis. Dating back to the Bronze Age, the acropolis offers encompassing views of the ruins. The site also includes city walls, a theater with a 52 m (170 ft) stage, a stadium, an agora, a necropolis, a gymnasium, and Roman baths. Join a guided tour to learn historical details about the site. Put Perge Ancient City on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Antalya itinerary planner.

  • Spend at least two hours here walking around and try to imagine how the edifices looked when not in ruins. Quite a few columns are raised on new bases which makes this easier. 
  • PERGA (Greek: Πέργη Perge), 18 km east of Antalya Aksu district is within the boundaries of the, once upon a time the capital of ancient Pamphylia Region. During the period of the bronze age Acropolis is said to have been founded in the city. [1] throughout the Hellenistic period, the old world is among the most rich and beautiful cities. [2] it is Also the hometown of the Greek mathematician Apollonius of Perga. Must-see an ancient city

  • Must-see an ancient city. Aspendos and Perge to each other and very close to the city center of Antalya.
