Hi Antalya visitors! Welcome the full day Private Perge-Aspendos-Side Tour by car with a local Archaeologist. I am Aykut, a private, experienced guide with a degree in classical archaeology, from Antalya, Turkey.
Together, we will visit the best-preserved classical sites in Antalya. The ancient city of Perge (or Perga, as it’s also known) was a significant city in ancient Pamphylia and is now an impressive archaeological site containing a wealth of ancient ruins. Among the ruins, we will explore the Marble Street, the ancient theatre, Roman baths and many more.
Our next stop will be Aspendos Theatre, the best-preserved ancient amphitheater built in the 2nd century A.D. during the reign of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius and one of the most elite representatives of Roman Age theatres in existence. The structure, dedicated to the Gods and the Emperors of the era is very efficient and fascinating that Theatre is still used for festivals, operas and bales.
After lunch at a local village, we will head to Side, a pretty resort town that was one of the biggest Roman cities in ancient times. You will be very surprised when we drive in Side to see the magnificent ancient ruins all over the Side peninsula including the Museum, the Roman baths, and the Apollo Temple.
Pick-up and drop-off to hotel or a pre-specified destination is included in the price.
Lunch and any entrance is extra.
