Background History

Aspendos is a world-famous Roman theatre. The design was made in the year 155 A.D. by a Greek architect called Zenon, who lived in the city of Aspendos. They claim, that it was built under Marcus Aurelius (161-180), meaning 2nd century A.D. It is richly decorated, really worth a visit. Today it is still used for the annual opera and ballet festival, usually taking place in September every year. It is famous for ıt’s fabulous acoustics.

 

Side, the antic city. It used to be the biggest slave trade center in the Mediterranean. There used to live 30.000 people in the 3rd century A.D. and today you find half of that city still in ruins. Most of the ruins you see today are built by the Romans, except the museum near the theatre. That used to be a bathhouse, built in the 5th century. The theatre of Side is unique on the outside. All the other theatres were built against the natural slope of a hill. There was no hill in Side. They had to build it with arches. On the outside, there were 14 shops and 5 entrances. It is the only theatre with elephant legs in the world.

 

Perge still has a very well preserved stadion, right outside the entrance gate of the antic city. Look at all the details in the stones. Remember they only had hammer and chisel. They sure understood the art of sculpting. Really fascinating. Perge Antic City still has some very interesting ruins to explore. Follow our guide.

 

The Kurşunlu waterfall is about 20 meters high and launches ıt’s water into a lake with large fishes. It lies in a beautiful park. Nice and cool in hot summer days. Do not miss this Aspendos- Side-Perge-Kurşunlu waterfall day tour from Antalya, in which we combine history and nature.
