Against the opposite hill,an impressive Theater features finely rendeed reliefs of Dionysus.Entering through the Roman gate,you will see a large Agora to your right.Up ahead,two imposing Hellenistic Tower mark beginning of the long colonnaded avenue leading to the Nymphaeum ,just behind Roman Public Bath,dating from the 3C AD.After Perge Ancient site,we willdrive to Aspendos Ancient Site,Aspendos has themost perfectly preserved Theatre in the Roman world.The estimated capacity of theater is 15.000,though in recent years more than 40.000 ,have been squeezed in to see Turkish wrestling and song contests.The theater is virtually as it was when first built.Apart from theatre,the most interesting monument in Aspendos is the Aqueduct.This brought water from the Isaurian Mountains in the North,a tremendous feat of engineering.The remaining section consists of an arched structure 880m long and 15m high,which carried the limestone water pipes,and two pressure towers. Then drive to Seljuk bridge over the Koprucay(Eurymedon) dating from the 13’th century AD. Still used, this replaced a 2C Roman bridge, whose ruins may be seen in the river – bed a few metres to the North. A tentative reconstruction of the 5m wide Roman bridge, whose central span was 9m above the water, shows that large sea going ships could have passed underneath it on their way to the docks. In relation to its Seljuk successor it was a veritable giants. When the tour has finished your Perge-Aspendos Tour guide will return you to your pick up point.
