Antalya & Pisidian Strongholds - Tour

  • 3 Nights 4 Days

Antalya & Pisidian Strongholds

Pisidia is the ancient mountainous land that fully surrounds the plain of Pamphylia. From prehistoric to Roman times the people that occupied this region remained distinct from the Pamphylians (who were descendants the people of Troy who migrated to the region after losing in battle) even though they were likely distant relatives. Alexander the Great struggled with the Pisidians and was never fully able to defeat them. The Pamphylians, however, would never engage him. Later, when Persia battled Greece, the Pisidians supported the Persians. Then, even under the Roman rule, while Pamphylia obeyed Rome, the Pisidians continued to battle themselves, one another and the Romans. Their vigor and distinction is likely due to the extremely rugged mountainous terrain on which they lived. This made their lives hard and the lives of their enemies harder.  You'll experience the grandeur and rugged beauty of their mountaintop locations on this tour - visiting untouched sites close to Antalya.   From the mountaintop site of Termessos just 45 mins from Antalya, to the unbelievable restored grand fountains in Sagalassos to the forests surrounding Selge and Adada, these sites retain their rugged appearance and protected national forest distinction. To mix in variety for this tour, lunch each day will be at interesting stops – a country horse farm, a waterfall, or a lakeside. While there are a few hours of driving on day 2, 3 and 4, the sites are well worth seeing as they are unique and often free of other tourists. This tour is ideal if you like hiking, exploring off the beaten path and seeing what few others dare to see.
