Located within the Aksu district of Antalya city, the ancient city of Perge has a long history tracing back to the Hittites. Aspendos, an important city in Anatolia during Roman times, is renowned for its exquisite architecture and stunning marble sculptures. These excavated artefacts have made Antalya’s Museum a must-visit destination for anyone looking to explore the ancient ruins of this remarkable side of Turkey.

Perge, Aspendos and Side are three examples of the many ancient cities that have been well-preserved throughout Anatolia. Aspendos is renowned for its excellent conservation of its Roman period theatre, which is one of the best in the Mediterranean region.

Perge and Aspendos, two of the major cities in ancient Pamphylia, each featured a unique theater. The theater of Perge dates back to the 5th century BC and is known for its impressive portico that is said to have been damaged by an earthquake in 51 AD. Meanwhile, the Theater of Aspendos was constructed during the time of Emperor Marcus Aurelius (161–180 AD) using architectural features and construction techniques seldom seen today. It still stands today as a remarkable example of Roman-era theaters.

We will have Lunch in Aspendos.

After lunch we will drive to Side.

Side, the richest and most important port city of Pamphylia in ancient times, was founded on a 350-400 m wide peninsula, 80 km east of Antalya and 7 km southwest of Manavgat.

Perge and Aspendos are both important ancient cities located in Pamphylia. Side dates back to the 7th century and was a part of the Lydian Kingdom until 546 when it came under the rule of the Persians. During this period, Side was able to retain some level of autonomy and even minted their own coins. In 334BC, during Alexander the Great’s Anatolian conquests, Side opened its doors without resistance and became one of his most important coin-producing centers.

Three of the most famous ancient sites in Turkey are Perge, Aspendos, and Side.  The Temple of Apollo at Side is renowned for its architectural beauty and served as an important symbol of Roman peace. Named after the Greek god of light, beauty and art, it was dedicated to Apollo and remains a popular attraction today.

В конце 2022 года нам наконец удалось совершить давно запланированную экскурсию в Аспендос и Перге через Vigo Tours и мы остались очень довольны. Огромное спасибо нашему гиду! Всем рекомендую услуги этого агентства.

Perge Aspendos Side

Vielen Dank für den schönen Ausflug. Die Guidetour war zwar in englischer Sprache, aber überhaupt kein Problem. Alles unkompliziert, von der ersten Anfrage, über die online Buchung, Bezahlung und schneller Kommunikation, gerne wieder und empfehlenswert. Kleine angenehme Reisegruppe, alles ohne Stress und Hektik. Der Ausflug wurde deswegen über Vigo gebucht, da täglich verfügbar und günstiger als bei meinen Pauschalreiseveranstalter.

Great place to visit!

We went as part of an organized trip to Aspendos. It was a bit of a strange feeling in such an old theater (the kind you see in old movies). walking up the stairs was brilliant and the architecture was quite spectacular. It was good to walk through all the tunnels and sit on the stairs / seats! PLEASE DO NOT go and see the camels that are outside. Our guide explained us that they are there all year round and not properly fed and watered. They also lie on hard ground all year round, which has damaged their legs. Camels have nothing to do with this place!
