ANTALYA- PERGE & ASPENDOS – 5 HOURS
After disembarkation in the morning, you wil be met at the port by your private guide and driver.

A forty-five minute drive through scenic countryside brings you to Perge, which was the principal town of Pamphylia during the time of Alexander, the Great. Settled by Greek colonists looking for respite from the brutal Trojan War, Perge prospered for many years under Alexander and later under the Roman Empire, but began to decline in importance under the Byzantines. Significant remnants from Perge’s long history include a theatre that can accommodate 14.000 people, huge Hellenistic and Roman gates, a beautiful and impressive colonnaded street, which leads you through several centuries of history laid out before you. Perge’s theatre is noted for its beautiful series of stage reliefs, which depict the life of Dionysus, god of wine, the vine, and patron of the dramatic arts. The theatre was used for centuries, and modified by the tastes of the ages, from Greek to Roman. The façade and the reliefs have faded over the centuries, but the theatre remains and impressive sight.

After admiring the works of the ancients in Perge, we will be off to Aspendos, passing through the Anatolian countryside. Aspendos itself contains ruins from Roman times, though the history of the settlement has been traced back to the Hittite Empire. It was during the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, of the movie “Gladiator” fame, and author of the “Meditations”, that Aspendos gained its fantastic theatre, undoubtedly the finest in all of Anatolia. The theatre is so remarkable, in fact, that upon seeing it Ataturk, founder of the Turkish Republic, remarked that it must be used rather than converted into a museum. He got his wish. A show here in this theatre, which seats 20,000, is a truly magical display. The setting is beautiful, the façade is stunning and the acoustics are unparalleled, making microphones unnecessary.

We will also explore the impressive Aqueducts of Aspendos, which transported water from the hills to the north to the town over a distance of 19 km. It demonstrates a sophisticated knowledge of hydraulic engineering.

Return to the ship at the end of the day.

Your excursion continues with a guided tour of Antalya’s splendid Archaeological Museum. Housed in 13 separate rooms, the Antalya Museum’s collection is one of the best of its kind. Feast your eyes on an amazing variety of impressive artifacts, including pottery, coins, mosaics, sculptures, costumes, sarcophagi, and relics found in the once-inhabited nearby caves. The museum will also provide you with some fascinating glimpses into local lifestyles past and near present, with a furnished nomad’s tent, a carpet loom, and several rooms from a typical Ottoman household.

Return to the ship at the end of the day.

ANTALYA- TERMESSOS– 4 HOURS
After disembarkation in the morning, you wil be met at the port by your private guide and driver.

We will cross the southern mountains and visit the ancient site of Termessos, a Pisidian city perched dramatically on a mountaintop. It is one of the best preserved of the ancient cities of Turkey.

Termessos constitutes an unusual synthesis of a large number of rare plants and animal species, which are under protection in the Termessos National Park. Concealed by a multitude of wild plants and bounded by dense pine forests, the site, with its peaceful and untouched appearance, has a more distinct and impressive atmosphere than other ancient cities. Because of its natural and historical riches, the city has been included in a National Park bearing its name.

Drive back to the Antalya Port to embark your cruise ship.
