Visit one of the most important archaeological sites in Asia Minor, located about nine miles (14 km)
east of Antalya. Enjoy a guided walking tour of about one hour, exploring the impressive remains of
Perge Mentioned as early as the 4th century BC, Perge experienced its most important period under
Alexander the Great. It was also the site of one of the oldest Christian communities in Asia Minor.
Paul and Barnabas came here after their flight from Antioch. See the impressive remains of a
theatre dating from 1000 BC, huge Hellenistic and Roman gates and a colonnaded street.
On the return drive from Perge, stop for a visit to Antalya's fine museum, located on the outskirts
of town. The museum features an excellent collection of items relating to Pamphylia's history,
from the Neolithic through the Bronze Ages to Hellenistic and Roman times. Of special interest
are statues of divinities, the collection of items recovered during underwater archaeology, and
the gallery of the Roman emperors. Following this visit, enjoy a brief introduction of Antalya before
returning to the ship. If you wish, you may stay in town and independently return to the ship later.
