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

It's a very interesting and must see place in Turkey. You will be amazed by the historical architectural built during those ancient time, especially like the theatre perched on the city's highest point, which has a breath taking view! Sites include the Altar of Zeus, Temple of Athena, the library, arsenals and temple of Trajan, which reflects the history well.

Excellent place for a history lover. However, you should manage your time: the hill is steep and requires time and effort for climbing up. There is an opportunity for the lasy ones or for those short of time: you can take a cable car (approaching the hill you will see the road sign). It costs 20 TL. There are several... More

The Pergamum (Bergama) archeological site is full of Bible history. It is eaily accessible by cable car. The site consists of Sanctuary of Athena, the Temple of Traianus, Royal Palaces and a large open theatre. The view is spectacular. In short, it is a "must-see" place in Turkey.

Just spectacular !! I know some of its ruins is displaying in other country, but one part of this site cannot be moved and it is just spectacular. I am talking about the largest theatre in ancient history, built along the hillside and can hold up to 25,000 person. It is impressive how Romans can built this place some 2000... More

Take the tram up, but you MUST walk down. There are spectacular ruins along the walk down that must be seen, including a huge gymnasium and beautiful mosaics.

The acropolis in Bergama is located on a towering hilltop above the city and are truly spectacular. The theatre in particular is very unique with it's steep incline and view over the valley. While the ruins are on a smaller scale than Ephesus, it some ways they are much more impressive given the location on the hill top. It is... More
