About this tour

Explore the historical sights of Perge, Aspendos, and Side, as well as the magnificent waterfall at Manavgat, on a full-day tour from Antalya. See the Temple of Artemis and the incredible Aspendos Theater, along routes followed by Alexander the Great.

Book a captivating day trip to explore the ancient wonders of Perge, Aspendos, and Side. Begin your journey in the morning with a visit to Perge, an integral archaeological site where many statues showcased in the Antalya Museum were discovered. Originally settled by the Hittites around 1500 BC, Perge served as a significant city in ancient Pamphylia. Notably, St. Paul visited Perge during his inaugural missionary journey. Marvel at the finely carved marble reliefs on the theater stage, explore the stadium displaying carvings from the city and witness the beauty of the long colonnaded road, adorned with mosaics and lined with shops. Other highlights include a grand agora, public baths, and a gymnasium. While most of Perge’s remains date back to the Roman era, the city’s symbol, two towers, marks the starting point of the colonnaded street culminating in the nymphaeum beneath the acropolis.

Aspendos beckons with its main attraction, the splendidly preserved theatre, showcasing the finest example of ancient architectural prowess in Turkey. Constructed with thoughtful precision by architect Zeno during the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius (161-180 A.D.), the theatre owes its remarkable preservation to later Byzantines and Seljuks. Immerse yourself in the historical ambiance of Aspendos, a testament to meticulous craftsmanship and enduring cultural significance.

The journey continues to Side, the furthest city in eastern historical Pamphylia. Nestled on a peninsula, Side was once a bustling commercial port and is now a popular holiday resort in Southern Turkey. Discover its rich history as we explore the Old Colonnaded Streets, Monuments of Fountains, Agora, and the Temple of Dionysos. The city’s name, Side, means pomegranate, symbolizing abundance and fertility. Key attractions include the Roman-style amphitheater and the imposing Temple of Apollo with its colossal columns.

Wrap up your day with a visit to the scenic Manavgat Waterfalls. The Manavgat River, originating in the Taurus Mountains and flowing to the Mediterranean Sea, forms a breathtaking waterfall just outside of Side. The wide falls create a picturesque backdrop, inviting visitors to swim, picnic, or cruise along the river, making it a perfect conclusion to a day filled with historical exploration and natural beauty.
