This morning we toured by bus many ancient sites in Athens including the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrian's Arch, the Panathinion Stadium built for the first modern Olympics held in 1896. We also saw the various venues built for the 2004 Olympics. To complete the day we hiked to the Acropolis site to see the architectural masterpieces of the Golden... More

We really liked the size of the ruins and friendliness of the employees there all speaking in English to give us great background information and information for what else we could do in Bergama.

The site is definately worth seeing. The theather which is on a 300 meter high hill is definately breathtaking once your at the top of it. There are not many artifacts but the ones still there are still worth the trip. As some of you might know the Germans took the main building Zeus's temple back to germany so if... More

This is a much smaller version of what you will find at Effaces but you will have the opportunity to explore without the crowd. Suggest you take the cable car up and spend as much time at the top as you like, but make sure you walk down. there is so much more to see on the way down than... More

We gave Efes a pass because of the hordes and instead headed here as we had heard it was quiet and it was. Had this stunner pretty much to ourselves. Highly recommend!

Most of the attractions of Bergama are contained on the one site. The ruins have had some reconstruction but not to the extent of some other Turkish sites. It is worth reading as you go around and an audio guide can contribute to the experience. Those who manage the site are not big on health and safety and a warning... More

I visited The Acropolis of Pergamon on a drizzly overcast day in early May. The good part of the weather was no wind and no crowds. Pergamon is rough around the edges. There is very little reconstruction, good imagination is helpful. I found the audio guide to be very good if a bit limited - only covering the major sites... More

We visited the Akropolis as a part of the Seven Churches Tour. It was a stunning experience to see the opulent Palace where thousands of slaves gave their lives to build a place totally given over to a hedonistic lifestyle of the privileged few. It gave us great comfort to read the scriptures in the Book of Revelation that talks... More

The Athens acropolis is a hill. This is a mountain. Also, no crowds, and less picked-over for stuff to put in the archeological museum. A delight to explore. If you're fit, buy a one way ticket up the lift, then when you're done up high, wind your way down to the exit, which is locked. Follow the chain link fence... More
