Welcome to Perge, a stunning ancient city located near Antalya in Southern Turkey. In this tourist information film, I, Mick Scarsbrook, or Mick Amca as the locals call me, will take you on a virtual journey through this historic and picturesque destination.
But before we dive into the wonders of Perge, make sure to check out my other videos. You can learn Turkish with Mick in short and easy lessons, and explore other breathtaking locations like Fethiye, Olu Deniz, and Dalyan.
Now, let’s talk about the camera gear I used to capture the beauty of Perge. I relied on top-quality equipment to bring you the best possible footage. The Lumix GH5 and Sony AX53 cameras were my trusted companions, providing exceptional image quality. To capture those panoramic shots, I used the Lumix FZ2000, while the GoPro enabled me to capture thrilling moments up close. And of course, the DJi Mavic 2 Pro allowed me to capture breathtaking aerial views.
But back to Perge. This ancient city boasts a rich history dating back thousands of years. As you explore its ruins, you’ll be transported back in time to when Perge was a thriving and influential metropolis. Marvel at the well-preserved architecture, including the remains of the Roman theater, the grand agora, and the impressive city walls.
Take a stroll along the paved streets, imagining what life was like for the people who once inhabited this bustling city. Explore the ruins of the Roman baths, where locals and travelers alike would relax and unwind. Admire the finely crafted sculptures and intricate mosaics that adorn the structures, showcasing the incredible craftsmanship of the time.
Perge is also famous for its stunning archaeological museum. Immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of this region as you discover ancient artifacts, intricate jewelry, and fascinating relics that offer a glimpse into the past.
If you’re worried about mosquitoes during your visit, I recommend Jungle Formula mosquito repellent. It’s a reliable and effective solution to keep those pesky insects at bay.
