Perge, Aspendos & Side Tour

Turkey

The area around Antalya is blessed not only with clement weather and delightful scenery, but it has also been bequeathed a wealth of historic and cultural sites. Perge, Aspendos and Side, three sites of national historical importance all fall within no an hour's drive of the city, and each other.

The Pamphylian city of Perge rose in the 12th or 13th century BC, its fortunes ebbed and flowed for two millennia through the rule of Lydia, Persia, Alexander the Great and the Romans before falling into ruin with the rise of the Great Seljuk Empire, roughly a thousand years ago. Aspendos is famous for its stunningly well-preserved Roman amphitheatre built during the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius. While the city of Side was once home to the Luvians, an ancient Anatolian people.

Wander the fascinating ruins of all three of these sites in one fabulous day of historic exploration. Your English speaking guide will collect you from your hotel at 9am. You will be escorted from site to site in the comfort of a Mercedes Vito Vip before being returned with a head full of memories and facts to your hotel at approximately 4pm.
