This tour is a daily tour from Antalya, on the Perge and Aspendos Half Day Tour, you will be taken by your Tour guide to the Perge Ancient Site, from the extensive remains of ancient Perge 16 km from Antalya, it is easy to imagine what a life must have been like this prosperous town with over 100.000 inhabitants, The Perge Stadium, which seated a crowd of 12.000,has a wall at the far end which was meant to protect spectators during the wild beast fights that took place here. Against the opposite hill is an impressive Theater which features 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 Towers that mark the beginning of the long colonnaded avenue leading to the Nymphaeum. Just behind is the Roman Public Bath that dates from the 3C AD. After visiting the Perge Ancient site we will then drive to Aspendos Ancient Site - Aspendos has the most perfectly preserved Theatre in the Roman world with the estimated capacity of 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 it first built apart from theatre the most interesting monument in Aspendos is the Aqueduct, this would bring water from the Isaurian Mountains in the North and was 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. After Aspendos we will then take a drive to Seljuk bridge over the Koprucay(Eurymedon) dating from the 13’th century AD which infact is still used as this replaced a 2C Roman bridge whose ruins may be seen in the river at jusr 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 ships could have passed underneath it on their way to the docks. When the tour has finished your Perge-Aspendos Tour guide will then 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.
