The acropolis is definitely worth a visit. There is not a whole lot of monuments still standing, but the situation of the archeolkgic finds on the top of the hill top is spectacular and very beautiful.

After Ephesus, this site was my favorite. The preserved and reconstructed ruins are impressive, and the views of the surrounding valley are breathtaking. Look out far to see the Aegean Sea in the distance when looking out from above the theater.

The place offers a great view point and the kids enjoyed the cable car ride up and down. At the cable car station there is a good market for souvenir and food. It makes for a good break point to catch a breath before continuing with the tour.

The acropolis is located at the top of the hill with amazing view. It is nice to walk through. Spend around 1-2 hours here. The theater is amazing, the one with the most extreme slop i ever seen.

An awe inspiring spectacle. The Turks have a different approach to their antiquities, being able to scramble around ancient monuments unconstrained by rules and regulations is really refreshing. The amphitheatre was the star attraction. If you stand in the central spot on the 'stage' you can talk normally and others on the top row (in my case my family having... More

The Acropolis was really interesting and very photogenic - as is the whole site. But you have to be fit to get around the whole place, on top of everything else!

Visited in March 2015. The Acropolis in Bergama is a must if you are visiting Western Turkey. During my first visit with Trafalgar we only saw the upper city. This is because the bus have to park at the top and there is no time to fully explore the site. This time we went alone and took the cable car... More

The wildflowers, the history, the views! So many amazing ancient roman sites along the Turkish coast, but this is probably my favourite. Take your time to move away from the tour buses and explore the whole site. Take some lunch and sit on the side of the hill, enjoy the view and imagine the wonder this site must have had... More
