Travel back in time to the days of togas and chariots with this private half-day tour to the ancient sites of Perga and Aspendos. Among the attractions you'll discover is perhaps the best-preserved Roman theatre of all.First on the history hitlist is the classical city of Perga. This once-bustling Roman port was founded around 1300 BC and the first stop for St Paul on his missionary journeys around the Mediterranean. Take a guided tour, stepping through the triumphal Roman gate to admire the ruined temples, marketplace and fountains. On the column-lined main street, you can even see the grooves in the flagstones created by chariot wheels. There's also a 12,000-seater stadium and the remnants of a Bronze Age acropolis.Next, we go to Aspendos to see one of the best-preserved theatres from antiquity. Built 2,000 years ago into a steep hillside and big enough for 15,000 spectators, its perfect acoustics mean that it's still used for operas and concerts today.
