itinerary

You shall be picked up from your Antalya hotel.

Pick up time information will be given to you maximum one day before your tour date according to your hotel location.

In the morning you will be taken by your Tour guide to Perge Ancient Site, the Ancient site of Perge is approx 16 km from Antalya and it is easy to imagine what a life must have been like in this once 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 an impressive Theater which features finely rendeed reliefs of Dionysus. On entering through the Roman gate, you will see a large Agora to your right and just 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 that dates from the 3C AD.

After Perge Ancient site we will 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.This incredble theater is virtually as it was when first built, apart from theatre the most interesting monument in Aspendos is the Aqueduct as this brought water from the Isaurian Mountains in the North and without a doubt 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. It is then drive to Seljuk bridge over the Koprucay(Eurymedon) dating all the way from the 13’th century AD and is still used today, it was this bridge that replaced a 2C Roman bridge whose ruins may be seen in the riverbed just a few metres to the North. A tentative reconstruction of the 5m wide Roman bridge with a central span of 9m above the water shows that large seaships could have passed underneath it on their way to the docks.

We will then have our lunch in Aspendos and afterwards we will drive over to Side, the resort of Side contains all the ingredients necessary for a complete Mediterranean coast vacation with its Hellenic ruins, parasailing, a fine Side Museum,qnd of course its beautiful sandy beaches. When you enter Side you will see the Nymphaeum memorial fountain which once had a marble facade depicting punishments administered to those who committed sexual sin or sins against the gods, th Theater of Side was built in the 2nd century CE and was built on level ground using arches, it is the largest in the area with a seating capacity of 25.000 people. Other ruins are Temple of Apollo, Agora, Roman Bath and the Side Archaeological Museum.

After that we will then drive back to Antalya and while on the way we will make a visit to Kursunlu Waterfall (May be replaced with Manavgat), When the tour has finished your Perge- Aspendos-Side Tour guide will return you to your pick up point. You can take a Private Perge-Aspendos-Side Tour where you can be picked up by your Antalya Tour guide at your convienence or a Perge-Aspendos-side Group tour, where your Antalya Tour guide will pick you up at approx 09.00 hours for your Tour from Antalya.
