We loved walking up the Acropolis. Better experience than just taking the cable car. The ruins are very interesting and we enjoyed amazing views from the top.

You can drive up to the modern cable cart building, park & purchase cable car tickets to go up (12TL/person). We tried to drive all the way up, but the road was blocked. It only took 5 Minutes for the cable to go up. Then, we purchased tickets to go inside the Acropolis (25TL per person). The site is magnificent.... More

The site is very large, but even with an audio-tour and maps (of poor quality) it is hard to navigate: here I would recommend hiring a guide. The most impressive and best reconstructed monument is the temple of Trajan. Much less to see of the other ruins, which however are still interesting

We went up with the sky lift so we wouldn't arrive exhausted at the top. The service was excellent and when you are on top the view is breathtaking! We were almost everywhere alone, only a few tourist were with us. It's also a very nice that you are allowed to walk through the ruins and make your own path.... More

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
