Trip Info

Start the tour by visiting Aspendos,  famous for its best-preserved theatre of antiquity built in the 2nd c. AD with a capacity of 15, 000 people. Still used today for performances and festivals, the theatre’s galleries, stage decorations and acoustics all testify to its architect Xenon’s success.
Next, visit Perge. It was settled by the Hittites around 1500 B. C. Kestros (Aksu) river, which runs near acropolis. It was an important trade route starting from Side.  It is also famous by the fact that when St. Paul started his journeys, he visited Perge in 46 A. D. and preached his first sermon here. That’s why it became an important city for the Christians during Byzantine period.
Side is the furthest city in the east of historical Pamphylia. Situated on a peninsula about 1000 m long and 400 m. wide, it fulfilled its duty as a commercial port. Naturally, Side used to be one of the most important trade centers in the antiquity and now it is one of the most popular holiday resorts in Turkey.
We will also visit the Kursunlu waterfall, which is reduced to a mere trickle in the summer months. It is located 19 km from Antalya at the end of a 7 km road branching off to the north of the Antalya-Serik-Alanya highway at a point 12 km from Antalya. The waterfall is on one of the tributaries of the Aksu river and its situation in the midst of a pine forest is of quite exceptional beauty. The countryside around the water forms a lovely picnic and pleasure spot only twenty minutes from the centre of the city of Antalya.
