Apart from other antique cities on the Mediterranean Coast of Turkey, Perge in Antalya is not establishing on the water side but approximately 10 km far from the sea. This unique location is due to the Aksu River which flows through the city. It is reported that the ships were able to reach the Mediterranean Sea and get back to it in spite of the debt of Aksu River. The famous Mathematician Apollonius was also a resident of the city. According to the recent excavations executed by Wolfram Martini, the plateau of Acropolis has been inhabited since 4th millennium BC.
Today, while it is not very well known like similar ancient settlements; there is still a lot to see and it is not far from the resort or hotel you will be staying at.
