A great place for those who love and feel antiquity. It is also a well-preserved archaeological site. Go and see it!

Acropolis is a great archaeological site. The Theatre is very impressive with a view on the modern city of Bergama. The site is large and the visit takes three hours. One must be careful not to miss any important part like the little museum with mosaics.

Extremely worthwhile UNESCO world heritage site atop a massive hill. Take a gondola to to the top and explore around the ruins. It's a good idea to have a guide with you, as the signage is present but quite technical and the site itself is very imposing. The theatre here is one of the most incredible I have seen (and...

Close to Selçuk, is a very nice place to visit before Efesus! It's less preserved, but it's a nice start. Try to go on the afternoon, when the light is better.

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.
