Today, it is a large site of ancient ruins 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) east of Antalya on the coastal plain. An acropolis located there dates back to the Bronze Age.

Nice ancient city. But there is not a lot of things to see without someone to tell about this place. Moreover to understand how great city was, you need to visit Sculpture museum in Antalya (there are a lot of sculptures from there)

A must see!! Knowing a place is 2000 years old is something amazing!! Way better than the famous acropolis in athens!! This is a whole city 2000 years old with main streets, arena, theater, even a harbour!! There was sea there once upon a time!! There you can see the archeologists working!! Still things are coming up to surface!!

Perge is an ancient city near Antalya, if you are a history buff.. Its a must and probably on your radar anyways. Amazing to just walk on mosaic floor and great walk up the old street. Can notice a lot of preserved work here and there. Very interesting site, stunning street pictures. Definitely recommend!

Lots and lots of ruins. Lots of walking. Totally worth. If you love history and archeology then a must see.

This ancient site has a nice mix of Roman and Hellenistic (Greek) styles. It's not been commercialised, which means that you can wonder the ruins and really see them for what they are. It is possible to reach the site from almost anywhere in Antalya using public transportation (bus and tramway to the Aksu station - on the Expo line). Spend at least 3 hours here.

Beauty in sheer size and restoration. Make sure you visit the ampitheatre that just recently opened

The old Roman city of Perge is a must place to visit near Antalya. The extent of the city ruins and the layout is simply magnificent and thought provoking. The market place, butcheries, hamam etc r worth seeing. Must see for every tourist visiting Antalya.

A lot of ancient ruins and building. If you go there be ready to spend at least 2 or even more hours if you want to see the most.

Fantastic site 25 lira entrance. Perge is an inland Roman ruin town on a river. The ruins include an amphitheatre, baths, byzantian tower etc. It also has the old Roman road lined with shops and buildings and temples. If you are in the antalya area it is an absolute must see. The detailing is exquisite in some areas is fantastic and there is still more digs going on.

Perge is an ancient city now with ruins in Turkey. Though it has not been maintained currently, nice and attractive place for archeological site lovers. Apart from the ruins, it has a sounior shops and a grocery for visitors. Souniors are little expensive. Also there is a cheap shop at the outside of the entrance. Further there is a good toilet/rest room inside the site for visitors and it is a great relief after walking long distance in the site.

If u would visit turkey .. u should must visit perge.. i just loved the place. Excellent tourist attrection.

Excellent site to roam around, fascinating ruins. The only downside was that we visited in 38+degrees and it was very hot and very little shade. There is a mosque /praying facilities on site and ablution facilities. We took shelter here. Restoration works also currently taking place and will be interested to revisit when this is complete. My 4 and 8 year old loved this place too. We purchased the museums card for 60 Turkish lira which gives entry into a range of sites including aspendos, antalya museum amongst others. This worked out value for money.

A wonderful ancient city. Some of these ancient sites are really inaccessible, but Perge is more suitable for people with walking difficulty.
