Perge is the a Roman ruin to Antalya, and worth a visit. We want to make a day of ruin hopping by combining it with visits to Aspendos.
The Great Theater and the stadium of Perge are most impressive and intact buildings. The remnants of its massive Hellenistic-Roman gate towers are so unusual. Through the gates are the remnants of a fine colonnaded street, not as fine as the Arcadian Way in Ephesus, but still quite impressive.
The southern baths and the agora are worth exploring. From Antalya the easiest ways to visit Perge by public transport, take a minibus from Antalya’s Otogar to the town of Aksu on the Antalya highway, then hitch or hike for 2 km north to Perge.
As for hiking, Perge is a starting point for the St Paul Trail leading north up to the Anatolian plateau, the other starting point is Aspendos.
