The ancient city of Perge or Perga is now an impressive archaeological site that accommodates a wealth of ancient ruins, that dates back to the Roman period, though the city itself has a history dating back well into antiquity. Once it was the capital of Pamphylia Secunda and presently it is a large site of ancient ruins 15 kilometers located in the east of Antalya on the coastal plain. It also has the acropolis dating back to the Bronze Age. Among the ruins visitors can admire the wonderful colonnaded main streets, the ancient theatre and the 12,000 seat Roman stadium. Also found at the site are the remains of Roman baths, the city’s imposing gates and a number of other ruins, including the impressive 2nd century AD Nymphaeum.

How to reach: The easiest way to reach Perge is to take one of the frequent dolmuses to the village of Aksu, about 10 miles east of Antalya. A dolmus (pronounced dolmoosh) is a minibus, and the best place to board one is a few hundred feet past the traffic circle at the east end of Ali Cetinkaya Caddesi, and the north end of Dr. Burhanettin Onat Caddesi."
