Travel back in time to the days of togas and chariots at these two ancient sites in this half-day excursion.
After being picked up from your hotel between 08:00 and 09:00 we'll head for our first stop, the classical city of Perge. This once bustling Roman port was founded around 1300 BC and was the first stop for St. Paul on his missionary journeys around the Mediterranean. It is also reputedly the birthplace of beer. Take a guided tour, stepping through the triumphal Roman gate to admire the ruined temples, marketplace and fountains. On the column-lined main street, meanwhile, you can even see the grooves in the flagstones created by chariot wheels long-ago. There is also a magnificent, 12,000-seater Roman stadium and the remnants of a Bronze Age acropolis.
Leaving Perge behind, it is then on to Aspendos to see the one of the world's best-preserved Roman theatres. Built into a steep hillside and big enough for 15,000 spectators, this vast semicircular edifice was used to stage plays 2,000 years ago. And its perfect acoustics mean that it is still used for operas and concerts today.
We will then return to the resort arriving back at around 14:00.
