My second visit, and I was amazed as much as the first time. This is one of the best historic sites I have seen. Imagining its magnificence back in its day is just mind boggling. If only the Zeus Altar was also standing there in its original location.

If you are interested in historical places this is one of the best location to visit. Seeing everything in original place is priceless. However, a significant portion of the residue is in Germany now.

While traveling to Ephesus, took only a day to visit this beautiful quaint, historic town. Only upon visiting all the places to see, did we realize that we should've booked at least another day if not more. The Acropolis is at the top of the mountain in the town and being up there, you appreciate how hardworking and savvy the... More

Evocative ruins on a hill-top with commanding view of the country-side and modern city of Bergama. Highlights are the steep theatre and the huge Temple of Trajan.

There are several listings under Bergama, with the Acropolis, Theater, general ruins - it is all the same thing: ruins of the ancient city of Pergamum. Take a nice tram up the mountain and take time exploring. One famous temple is in a museum in Berlin, but there are plenty of other ruins. Take a guide for the best orientation.

Absolutely a Turkish delight. As a Classics student the sight of Pergamum's ancient Acropolis in all its grandeur sent me into paroxysms of glee. But fear not, those of you who are not history nerds, the place has much to offer you lowly plebeians. The stunning Temple of Trajan looms at the top, surrounded by a Dionysian amphitheater and the... More

We were stunned at the size, the scale and the location of this beautiful Acropolis. Some of the restored pillars and the models give you an idea of how magnificent this structure must have been in its time. The surrounding amphitheatre, the Altar of Zeus, the ruins of the library all add to a very, very impressive spectacle. It's totally... More

My family and I are impressed with the location and sophistication of the ancient city of Acropolis! The columns of Zeus temple are still intact and gives one an idea about the wealth and development level of the city. The only down side is that the most valuable part of the Acropolis treasury, the Pergamon Altar, was stolen away to... More

The Acropolis is stunning in every sense. It's hight, panoramic views, it's establishment and the whole city complex in its self. If unveiled in its entirety it would present a wholly functional antique city. You may take the cable car to go up and walk down since not to miss the mosaics and the gymnasium. Don't miss the theatre with... More
