We will drive to our meeting point after picking up guests and drive to Perga now commonly spells Perge which was the capital city of the Pamphylia region, south western Mediterranean coast of Turkey. Today it is a large site of ancient ruins 15km east of Antalya in the coastal line. There is an acropolis located, dating back to the Bronze Age. In Perge you will see city gate, Roman Bath, Column Street, Agora and Stadium.
Then we will drive to Aspendos. Aspendos was an ancient city in Pamphylia, Asia Minor. It was situated on the Eurymedon River about 10miles (16km) inland from the Mediterranean Sea. The Greek spelling of the name is Aspendos. According to mythology, the city was founded around 1000 B.C. by Greeks who may have come from Argos. Here we will visit the best protected theatre of the little Asia, which the theatre has amazing acoustics and during the summer months concerts are held here (listening to an opera or a musical under the stars in such an ancient setting is an evening not to be missed). Afterwards you will have your lunch at a nice restaurant. Then we will drive to Side antique city, and we will see the splendid Agora, Theatre and Temples built in the seventh century B.C.
