You shall be picked up from Antalya airport, Antalya hotel, Antalya Marina or the cruise ship port in Antalya. Your Antalya guide will be holding up a sign with your name on it. The Antalya tour will take approximately 4-5 hours and after will drive you back to your Antalya hotel, Antalya Marina, Antalya airport or Antalya harbor in Turkey.
This tour is a daily tour from Antalya and on the Perge and Aspendos Half Day Tour you will be taken by your Tour guide to Perge Ancient Site, the extensive remains of ancient Perge is just 16 km from Antalya and it is easy to imagine what a life must have been like this prosperous town that had over 100.000 inhabitants. The Perge Stadium which seated a crowd of 12.000 has a wall at the far end that was meant to protect spectators during the wild beast fights that took place here. Against the opposite hill is the impressive Theater features that finely rendeed reliefs of Dionysus. Entering through the Roman gate you will see a large Agora to your right and up ahead are two imposing Hellenistic Tower that mark the beginning of the long colonnaded avenue leading to the Nymphaeum. Just behind is the Roman Public Bath dating from the 3C AD.
After Perge Ancient site we will then drive to Aspendos Ancient Site, Aspendos has the most perfectly preserved Theatre in the Roman world, the estimated capacity of theater is 15.000 although 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 and is a tremendous feat of engineering. The remaining section consists of an arched structure that is 880m long and 15m high which carried the limestone water pipes and two pressure towers. From here we will then drive to Seljuk bridge over the Koprucay (Eurymedon) dating from the 13’th century AD and is still used, this bridge replaced a 2C Roman bridge whose ruins may be seen in the riverbed just a few metres to the North. It is a tentative reconstruction of the 5m wide Roman bridge whose central span was 9m above the water, and by this it shows that large seaships could have passed underneath it on their way to the docks.
When the tour has finished your Perge-Aspendos Tour guide will return you to your pick up point. You can take a Private Perge-Aspendos Tour where you can be picked up by your Antalya Tour guide at your convienence or a Perge-Aspendos Group tour, where your Antalya Tour guide will pick you up at approx 09.00 hours for your Tour from Antalya.
