Only a ten minute trip from Aspendos and 10 miles from Antalya is Perge. This is another one of the four Ancient Greek cities with heaps of character and plenty of features to explore. The baths, theatre, temple, aqueduct and water fountain are amongst the best preserved of the remains you can find here.

Perge used to be the capital of this region in south-west Turkey. This location, 13 miles inland was chosen in 100 AD to provide defence against the bands of roving pirates which terrorised the coastal waters of the ancient Mediterranean.

One of the myths that pervades this city is that Perge was the birthplace of one of modern day’s favourite beverages – beer!
