  • In General, Roman imperial periods has an important place in terms of urban planning. Column drilling machine water channel that runs along the middle of the street tall period design is great. Also 4 monumental fountain structure and 2 baths with pergeye water has given the title of city. In addition, the military architecture of the Acropolis walls were placed pergeye. Weekday trips have allowed the introduction of monuments on the outside. Weekend gezilırse is not allowed. Excessive heat can underwhelm walking people. I don't have enough space to relax in the spacious area shaded. Perge is necessarily a world city which must be visited.

Where to stay in Antalya

The Mediterranean holiday spot of Antalya is abundant in places to stay. The Old Town of Kaleiçi boasts a plethora of small guesthouses and hostel offerings set in traditional Ottoman houses of stone. Often accompanied by a charming backyard pool and garden out front, these affordable accommodations are just a stone's throw from the harbor and amenities. You can find a few upscale boutique hotels here as well. If you're looking to splurge a little more, head to the suburb of Lara, just east of Antalya. Here, four- and five-star all-inclusive resorts dominate the sandy beaches.
