Perge Ancient City:

Perge is the best preserved ancient city and located 17 km east of Antalya, within the borders of Aksu. Here you can see the Greco-Roman Theatre, Ancient Stadium, Roman Baths, Agora, and Marble Streets. Its sculpture is as popular as its architecture. The important monumental structures of the city have been discovered through excavations made by the University of Istanbul since 1946 and due to the finds of these sculptures, Antalya Museum has one of the richest collections of Roman sculpture anywhere. Historians once believed Perge was founded at the end of the Trojan wars (1275 B.C) but a Hittite tablet mentioning Perge was found in 1986 showing the city was established before the Trojan wars.

Aspendos Theatre:

Aspendos Theatre is one of the most elite representatives of Roman Age theatres in existence, with its unique architectural features and excellent state of preservation. The structure, dedicated to the Gods and the Emperors of the era, presents the latest end points of Roman Age architecture and construction practices. One of the most magnificent structures of its period, the theatre was able to hold 7000-8000 people. It was built by architecture Zeno, son of Theodoras, in the period of Emperor Marcus Aurelius (161-180 A.D). It is understood from the inscriptions at both sides of the entrance in Latin and Greek that it was made by two rich brothers named Curtius Crispinus and Curtius Auspicatus. Today Aspendos Theatre is used for festivals, operas and bales.
