The history of the region is rich and the ruins are fantastic. I'd recommend using the audio tour as they point out some of the less obvious but more interesting bits and pieces. Also take the time to walk off the tour and just explore. The area is stunning.

Excellent site. Make sure you get away from the crowds by walking down the hill rather than catching the gondola (so only buy a single ticket), and you will then see some of the better monuments such as the mosaics in Building Z

We did not plan to come here originally but were recommended by the hotel it can't be missed so we came. Once we arrived the hill, oh my god! Such a ancient ruin on the hill built by the General of Alexandra. It is really crazy one with ancient ruin seeing wonderful view here! Excellent place that I really think... More

After the the theft of German Carl Humann the most important part has been in Berlin Museum for more than 100 years.... So there is almost nothing, just parts of city walls and some column.

On arrival at Bergama one can see some relics on the top of the hill but it is on reaching the site - via an excellent cable car service - that both the scale and quality of the Acropolis hits home. The view is also panoramic and this is something that doesn't leave you until disembarking from the return cable... More

I had never heard of Bergama until this visit and didn't realise that it was the site of one of the major centres in ancient times. The Acropolis has been rebuild a number of times due to earthquakes and man made culture changes, but enough is left that is impressive, particularly the vaulted arches supporting the main temple. For people... More

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.
